Event description:

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk presents a twist on its occasional “Sensory-Friendly Mornings” by instead offering a “Sensory-Friendly Evening” for guests with sensory-processing differences. Just like the “Sensory-Friendly Mornings,” this “Sensory-Friendly Evening” acknowledges that, for some people, the Aquarium is a place with too much stimuli. So accommodations will be made to give guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting experience. During the "Sensory-Friendly Evening," lights will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off. The Aquarium also will show a specially selected IMAX movie at 7 p.m. with lower volume and the theater lights less dim.
