Event website

You are invited to a sensory-friendly Halloween-themed playtime, including trick-or-treating, Halloween art time, exploring the museum exhibits, and a small snack.
Play Your Way is a monthly sensory-friendly play time open to anyone who would benefit from a quieter, low-key experience. This is the perfect time for families affected by Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other challenges to explore CMTM, meet other families with similar experiences, and see if the Museum & Theatre is the right fit for you and your family.
Trick-or-treat stations will mostly feature sensory and fidget-type toys with a small number of candy treats available. All food treat stations will have a non-food treat option.
Admission is free. Reservations are highly recommended. Please RSVP here:…/play-your-way-trick-or-treat
