For some, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is a place with too much stimuli. So April 2-4, the Aquarium is planning three special mornings (a weekend + a Monday) to give guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting environment.
On each of the “Sensory-Friendly Mornings,” lights in the Aquarium will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off. The Aquarium also will show specially selected IMAX movies, with lower volume and the theater lights less dim.
For families that need to leave within the first 30 minutes, passes will be available to come back and try again another day.
Monday, April 2 will especially be a good morning for visits by schools for students with special needs.
The Aquarium’s “Sensory-Friendly Mornings” support “Light It Up Blue” on World Autism Awareness Day on April 2.
Maritime Aquarium, 10 North Water Street in Norwalk
Saturday, April 2 – Monday, April 4
