Description

Join us for a fun filled morning at the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History!


Families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders are invited to attend our free program in a less-stimulating and crowd-free environment at the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History on June 11, 9:30-11:30am. The Museum of Natural History is currently located in the 90-year-old Ruthven Museums Building which is not fully air-conditioned. Please dress accordingly.

This My Turn program will include time for visitors to explore the galleries at their own pace, a planetarium show, ASD-friendly, hands-on activities and specially trained staff and docents. The Museum will also offer sunglasses, noise reducing earmuffs, and a “quiet room” with tactile toys for families who need to step away from the activities for a bit.



Planetarium shows will take place at 10:00, 10:30, and 11:00am. Each show will last approximately 20 minutes.

Please note that the Museum of Natural History is currently located in the 90-year-old Ruthven Museums Building which is not fully air-conditioned. Please dress accordingly.

While the program is recommended for ages 5 and above, all are welcome to participate.

Please visit www.myturncommunity.org for more information and materials to help prep your family for a fun and engaging visit!
