Event description:

Families with members on the autism spectrum can attend a 40-minute tour led by specially trained guides, then spend some time exploring the Discovery Room before the museum opens to the public.

Children ages 5-9 will discover the dioramas in the Jill and Lewis Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals, which offers a snapshot of the plants and animals native to North America. They will then plunge into the ocean to explore the dioramas in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life. Children ages 10-14 will take a trip through the David S. and Ruth L. Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth to explore the planet we live on and the forces that create volcanoes, earthquakes, and rock formations.

Space is limited and advance registration is required.
