Sensory-Friendly Morning is a free program for all people who benefit from visiting the MCA without large crowds and other sensitive environmental elements.
This includes visitors with sensory sensitivities, disabilities, autism, PTSD, dementia, and more. On these mornings, lighting at the museum is dimmed, sounds from artworks and environmental noise is kept at a minimum, and a quiet space is available to visitors for breaks.
During Sensory-Friendly Mornings, preregistered individuals and their families can visit the museum to explore exhibitions at their own pace, and join a Chicago-based artist for a sensory-friendly art-making experience.
Please Note: The museum is closed to the general public until 11:30 am; at that time, the lights and artworks return to usual operations.
MCA admission is free for those 18 and under.
10:00 am –11:30 am
Join Hubbard Street Dance Chicago teaching artist Anne Kasdorf for an adaptive dance and movement activity to slow down and connect with yourself.
For information on getting to and around the museum as well as details about MCA accessibility initiatives, visit our Accessibility page, or ask any Visitor Experience Associate during your trip; they’re more than happy to help you navigate the museum.
