  • Weighted lap pads
  • Wheelchairs
  • Sunglasses for overstimulating lights

Registered guests can enjoy a FREE planetarium experience. During this time, the planetarium will have an open-door policy while showing a 5-minute looping video of beautiful space images accompanied by soft classical music in an ambient light environment.

A “Quiet Space” is available during any visit to the museum. This room has been designed to provide a soothing environment. Please ask a staff member or a security guard for access. 

Space is limited. Registration is recommended. Museum opens to the general public at 10 AM.
