Join us at the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre on the first Tuesday of each month for a family-orientated evening of special sensory-friendly experiences for children and adults with sensory sensitivities in a calming and inclusive environment. Starting Tuesday, February 4, Sensory-Friendly Sunsets runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In this after-hours program, lighting and sounds in the museum will be altered to reduce external stimuli and a several sensory-friendly activities will be made available for families to engage with on your own terms. Activities include the following:

  • Hands-on-Heritage: children will be encouraged to touch and match objects made of different materials
