Vintage Taxidermy & Insect Museum Quiet Hours, No flashing lights, Gentle Atmosphere & All-Autistic staff to provide tours of the exhibits.
As a business owner who is autistic and epileptic, I understand the importance of creating a welcoming environment for our friends who may have sensory sensitivities.
On Friday afternoons between 11:00am and 3:00pm, we will have a calm and peaceful atmosphere with no music or bright flashing lights, and only a limited number of guests or groups will be allowed in at a time.
We have different activities available and plan for them based on each family’s interests.
If you want to plan an activity for your family visit, please contact us at [email protected].
In 2024, we might start a bit later in the morning due to meetings, so if we don’t answer the door right at 10:30am, please be patient with us. You can call the numbers listed on this page to let us know you’re here if you haven’t previously notified us about your visit.
Our exhibit has many touch-friendly items, and we want everyone to feel safe and comfortable here.
We welcome stimming and encourage you to be yourself. If you need any extra accommodations, please don’t hesitate to call us at 312-961-7219.
Our main floor is accessible for people with disabilities, and we offer a promo code, SENSORYKIDS, for 50% off children’s tickets.
