Sensory-Friendly Hours

Sensory-Friendly Hours provide a quieter, less crowded SCI experience for families with children on the autism spectrum.

The Science Center of Iowa is an exciting place, bustling with sights and sounds... but one Saturday morning each month, we provide a quieter, less crowded visit for Sensory-Friendly Hours!

Families with children on the autism spectrum or children with sensory processing disorders will enjoy exploring the Science Center of Iowa with the help of Sensory Guide signage, which indicates audio, visual and activity stimuli.

Sensory-Friendly Hours are the first Saturday of the month from 8:30–10:00 am, October through May. Admission is free, and no advance tickets are required. Simply check in at the Box Office when you arrive!

Sensory-Friendly Hours are funded in part by a grant from Variety – the Children’s Charity.
