Family Night Out at DuPage Children’s Museum
An evening of play and learning for children with special needs and their families.
Family Night Out at the DuPage Children’s Museum is scheduled for Jan. 27 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The after-hours event provides an evening of play and learning for children with special needs and their families, focusing on the autism spectrum and other sensory processing disorders as well as physical disabilities.
Finding places for the whole family to play without stress can be difficult, but Family Night Out allows for a time to experience the museum in a calmer, less crowded environment. Some lighting and sound will be muted, and additional sensory activities and cool down spaces will be provided.
Admission is free but registration is required on the event’s registration page.
In an effort to provide a sensory-friendly environment, admission will be capped at 225 guests.
Complimentary snacks and beverages will be available. Attendees are welcome to bring their own food.
Another Family Night Out is scheduled for Feb. 16 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Advanced registration is also required for the February event.
