Making Culture Fun for Autistic Kids at the Phoenix Children’s Museum

If you haven’t been to the Phoenix Children’s Museum in a while, it’s high time you planned another visit. In addition to the normal exhibits and hands-on activities that kids come from all over to enjoy, there’s an additional reason to grab your datebook.

On September 7th from 4:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. the museum is hosting a special night of play for families who have children with autism. Because the Children’s Museum is sensitive to the needs of children on the autism spectrum, they know that the crowds and noises may make a trip to the museum one that’s difficult for some families. In order to address the needs of all Phoenix children, they’ve set aside this two and a half hour period for children with autism and their families to explore the museum at their own pace.

Admission to the Special Night of play is free but they ask that anyone who is interested make their reservations here on their website. Reservations are required in order to limit the attendance to just 400 visitors to ensure a peaceful environment.

The museum’s exhibits and activities are designed for anyone of a developmental age between zero and 10 and your child can take part in this absolutely free activity thanks to the generosity of individual donors who participated in the Groupon Grassroots fundraising campaign last fall.

The Children’s Museum of Phoenix was founded in 1998, with a vision toward fostering a joy of learning and building a cultural understanding among patrons while celebrating diversity. Please call today to make your reservations for this important event which will engage the mind and imagination of all family members.

The museum is located at 215 N. 7th Street in Phoenix and you can contact them by calling (602)253-0501 or via email. Make your reservations now, because this event is sure to fill up quickly.
