Sensory Days are for families of children, teenagers and young adults with disabilities including intellectual disabilities, autism, sensory processing disorders and other cognitive disabilities. Families will get access to the Museum*, during off-hours, where they can explore and self-guide through the galleries with adjusted light and sound for the best possible experience.

Sensory Days are intended as a positive and meaningful experience for families visiting The Museum of Flight.

We are excited to include activities from the Aviation Learning Center as a special offering for Sensory Days participants. Find us on the lower level of the Great Gallery by the front of the Blackbird.


Our next Sensory Days experience is Thursday, March 30 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM!

FREE Admission; pre-registration required.
Museum Store (15% discount for Sensory Days participants) and Wings Café are open during Sensory Days.

*Aviation Pavilion and Charles Simonyi Space Gallery will close at 5:00 PM. Early check-in is available if you would like to visit these galleries.
