Heinz History Center Sensory Friendly Days
April 18 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until April 19, 2021
In recognition of Autism Acceptance Month, the Heinz History Center and Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum will host its first-ever Sensory Friendly Days, presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods, on Sunday, April 18 and Monday, April 19.
Sensory Friendly Days will offer individuals of all ages with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or sensory processing differences the opportunity to experience “the Smithsonian’s home in Pittsburgh” in a comfortable and welcoming environment. The History Center is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all visitors.
In partnership with Autism Connection of Pennsylvania and additional leaders in the region’s autism community, the History Center has identified and implemented modifications to support a more sensory-friendly experience, including but not limited to: mitigation of sudden/loud sounds and motions, lighting adjustments, designated break and rest spaces and family restrooms, and increased directional signage throughout the museum.
Thanks to support from DICK’S Sporting Goods, the History Center will offer free admission on April 18-19 for individuals with ASD or sensory processing differences plus one guest.
Space is limited, so please register in advance.
Please note that the time on your ticket refers to your arrival time at the History Center. You’re welcome to stay as long as you’d like!
