March 25 | 8 AM - 10 AM

Sensory Saturday is a free opportunity for families of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities to explore the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in a safe, understanding environment. Sensory Saturday will provide guests and members with sensory needs a space to interact with other families and learn about what opportunities the community has to offer.

Guests are welcome to stay after the event. The museum will do a soft close at 9:45 am to reset for general public hours.
