Sensory Friendly Playtime at the Louisiana Children's Museum

First and Third Thursdays of every month, 4:30-6:30PM

At LCM, we are committed to building stronger, connected communities through active engagement. We welcome all families and children, of all backgrounds and circumstances, and offer low-sensory playtime experiences where children with sensory-specific needs can explore the Museum without the noise, crowds, and stimulation of typical open hours. Attendance is more limited, sounds and lights are turned down, and adaptive equipment, such as noise-reducing headphones and weighted vests, are provided. When available, specialists will be on hand to help facilitate activities and provide resources.
