Sensory Sundays

Sensory Sundays are being created and hosted in partnership with Autism Services of FL.
Our sensory-friendly planetarium shows are for guests with Autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivities, or young children. Everyone is welcome, even if you don’t have sensory needs.
First Sunday of Every Month at 10:30 am • $5 Per Person

Shows are limited to a maximum of 50 audience members. These shows will run with the lights up and dimmed, the sound down, and the theater doors open so people can move about as needed. Guests are welcome to “chill out” in our lobby. All shows include a live star talk about what is up in the sky that night. We will include a short break between the main show and star talk.
