Everyone should be able to enjoy the Science Center. That’s why the Connecticut Science Center is lowering the volume and dimming the lights for their friends with sensory disabilities. All who will benefit from a quieter environment are invited as special guests for the day! All visitors will get the fun of the Connecticut Science Center plus tons of great activities, arts & crafts, and LIVE Science Demonstrations without the usual loud sounds and bright lights. Create sensory lava lamps with our Teen Innovation Staff and explore more than 165 hands-on exhibits. Sensory Friendly Day is presented by the Miracle League of Connecticut.
