Low Sensory Sundays

Join us in Whatcom Museum's Family Interactive Gallery (FIG) on several dates this year for special hours reserved for children with sensory processing and autism spectrum needs. 

On Low Sensory Sundays, the FIG opens early to offer a dedicated time reserved for children who require a quieter environment to focus, explore, and make art. Admission is free! 

During Low Sensory Sunday hours (10 - 11:30 a.m.), the FIG installs moveable walls to create focused areas for children to explore. Lights and sounds are turned low, and tools such as gloves, activity cue cards, timers, and headphones are provided. (These tools are also available every day at the front desk at both of the museum’s buildings – the Lightcatcher and Old City Hall – for people to use any time.) 

Activities are child-led, and knowledgeable staff are on hand to help. This is a judgment-free space for children and families to connect and make art! The FIG opens to all guests and visitors at noon on Sundays.

Starts: September 24, 2023

Time: 10 - 11:30 a.m.

Admission: Free!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
