On January 11, 2015 from 8:00am to 12:30pm, The Franklin Institute is pleased to offer a sensory adapted experience.

A special discounted rate of $12.50 adults/ $9.50 children (3-11 years old) / members are free!  This rate is available for guests arriving between 8:00am and 9:30am and for pre-registered guests, but you are welcome to stay all day.  Regular museum rates apply after 9:30 am unless pre-registered.

The museum can sometimes seem a little overwhelming.  It can be crowded, loud, and bright.  It is our goal to make Sensory-Friendly Sunday a comfortable environment for kids and adults with a variety of sensory differences.  On Sensory-Friendly Sunday our exhibits will be modified to provide an opportunity to experience all The Franklin Institute has to offer for people on the autism spectrum and with a range of differing abilities.  Our trained staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have and, if necessary, direct you to a quiet space that provides a chance to cool down and take a break. We are also offering the opportunity to “try again” if your visit isn’t successful in the first half hour.

To register:  Call Center, 215-448-1200
