Inside JCPRD: Sensory Friendly Mondays at the Johnson County Museum

Sensory Friendly Monday participants explore KidScape at the Johnson County Museum.

By Johnson County Museum Curator of Education Leah Palmer

The Johnson County Museum believes passionately that museums are for everyone. But for many people in our community, the barriers that keep them from visiting are everywhere. For some individuals, the sights, sounds, and unknown experiences of a museum can be overwhelming. To address this, the museum set out to create an experience that would allow children with sensory processing differences and Autism Spectrum Disorders, and their families, to come out and experience all the museum has to offer.
