Potter Park Zoo

The state’s first certified sensory inclusive zoo, Potter Park Zoo offers monthly FALCONERS events to welcome anyone with unique challenges such as autism or developmental disabilities. Activities, including up-close meetings with animals, are designed for all ages. On September 21, families can stay late—or overnight—at the zoo.


On the third Sunday of each month, two shows at Abrams Planetarium’s dome theater run with the lights up, the sound low and the theater doors open so that guests can move around as needed during the show and star talk. There’s also a designated lobby space for breaks.

Science Center 

Impression 5 Science Center gets its name from engaging the five senses, but it plans monthly events that reduce crowds and limit sounds, scents and lighting. As at many places around town, guests can check out backpacks that include noise-canceling headphones, dark glasses and other items that may assist with needs. Register in advance.

Chuck E Cheese

Chuck E. Cheese has announced it will be Sensitive Sundays where it will open two hours early on the first Sunday every month for children with Autism and other special needs.  Sensitive Sunday will include:  reduced lighting and noise, food and games and trained and caring staff.  Click here for locations and more information.
