If you or someone you know has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or sensory sensitivities, we would like to help you prepare for your visit to the Museum of Natural History.
Download a sensory map or pick one up at the museum’s Admissions Desk. The map provides the layout of the museum and indicates areas that tend to be noisier and where you can sit down for a quiet rest.
Download our Social Narratives to see photos and learn more about what you can see and do at the museum when you visit.
Download our Social Narratives for Spiders! The Art & Science of Arachnids to see photos and learn more about what you can see and do when you visit our new exhibit.
