The Crown Family PlayLab at The Field Museum is hosting Sensory Saturdays, a sensory-friendly morning of hands-on exploration and discovery. We understand that some children may have specific sensory processing needs in order to have a great museum experience. So, we are opening the doors of the Crown Family PlayLab one hour early, from 9-10am, to meet the needs of those families. Registration will be capped at 40 guests so that families can enjoy a crowd-free space. There will be tactile opportunities and sensory tools to help ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone. The Crown Family PlayLab is geared for young children, but you'll find many opportunities for children of all ages to learn through hands-on exploration and discovery.

Please be mindful that this event is designed for individuals with disabilities and sensory processing needs; siblings and family members are welcome to attend. If you are interested in learning more or if you'd like to register your family for a Sensory Saturday event, please e-mail accessibilityeducator@fieldmuseum.org or call 312.665.7545.

The Crown Family PlayLab is accessible to wheelchair users and to guests who need to avoid stairs. If additional accommodations are needed before your visit, please let us know in your e-mail to accessibilityeducator@fieldmuseum.org.
