New Planetarium Show Suited for Adults and Children with Sound/Light Sensitivities, and More
The first show, Big Bird's Adventure: One World, One Sky (Soft Light, Soft Sound) will be offered for the first time October 6 at 10:30 am and will also be shown on the first Sundays of November and December as well. With looser house rules, audience members should feel comfortable to talk amongst themselves and move from their seats, so that everyone feels welcome to enjoy the Planetarium experience and the wonders of the night sky regardless of sensory needs, ability, or age.
This show’s environment, which will be rolled out to the Museum’s other Planetarium shows, can benefit individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, dementia, sound/light sensitivities, and a wide range of needs. As the Museum of Science aims to foster an inclusive, welcoming environment for all, our newest shows in the Charles Hayden Planetarium further that mission.
