Springfield, IL: Museum offers "Sensory Friendly Day"

July 29, 2023, WLBS AM, Jacksonville, IL: ALPLM Offering Sensory Friendly Day on Sunday

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will offer a sensory friendly afternoon for people who may be overwhelmed by intense light, strong sounds and large crowds tomorrow afternoon.

The event will run from 1-5PM at the ALPLM. Audio will be lowered throughout the museum, and lighting will be adjusted to reduce extremes and create a more fluid atmosphere. Some special effects will be turned off, and a quiet room will be available….

The ALPLM also offers “busy bags” with a variety of fidgets, noise-canceling headphones, sensory maps and other tools that make visits more comfortable for people with sensory issues.

Another “sensory friendly Sunday” is scheduled for the last Sunday of October.
