To create a more welcoming experience throughout the galleries for our neurodiverse guests, from 5 to 8 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month artworks with heightened sensory components in our galleries and exhibitions will be altered slightly to lower their volume and intensity.

We’ll have our Sensory Friendly Bags available for check-out, containing fidgets, noise-canceling headphones, copies of the Sensory Friendly Map and Social Narrative, and a Communication Aid and writing materials for those who would like an alternate way to communicate with our staff. Our low sensory space near the Great Hall will also be open for guests to use throughout the evening.

For more information on resources available to our neurodiverse guests,  please check out this guide on our blog, or contact to inquire about accommodations during your visit.

Free, no tickets required. Admission to the permanent galleries is always free. Exhibition ticket requirements vary.

Learn more about our exhibitions and reserve tickets online, with Guest Services in-person or by phone at (479) 657-2335.
