Special Night of Play at HOCM

Calendar/Event Details


Join us for Special Night of Play - our special evening event for families of children with autism or other special needs, led by museum educators.

This evening provides a sensory friendly opportunity to experience the Museum without strobe lights, loud music and other sounds. Arts education supported by Agustinho Rodrigues Trust.

What are Special Nights of Play?
Led by museum educators, these are special evening events for families of children with autism or other special needs that provide a private, less over-stimulating time to experience the museum with other families who may share the same life experience.

What resources will be there?
These events also allow families to connect with local community resources, including:
Basics NW
Pediatric Therapy Associates
South Sound Parent to Parent

How can families of children with special needs prepare for their visit?
To plan your visit to the museum, check out our interactive map. We've also prepared a Sensory-Friendly Story Guide to help you and your child familiarize yourself with the museum and its exhibits before you visit. Written from a child’s perspective, the guides can be helpful in planning which exhibits to visit and in which order.
