Sensory-Friendly Saturdays are mornings of exploration and hands-on learning for neurodiverse guests and their families. These events are open to all individuals who would benefit from a low-sensory museum experience.

Saturday, December 3, 2022
9:30–11 a.m.
Theme: Notre-Dame de Paris

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel December's Sensory-Friendly Saturday. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to future hands-on events at The Historic New Orleans Collection.


Guests will meet at 520 Royal Street at 9:30 a.m. to visit Notre-Dame de Paris: The Augmented Exhibition. Each guest will receive a Histopad device to explore this immersive exhibit. Choose your own adventure and step into the fascinating history of the creation, destruction, and restoration of the cathedral. After touring the exhibition, guests can try hands-on activities. Get creative by making your own version of a stained-glass window. Bring history to life by making your own gargoyle puppet! 

Questions? Please contact Rachel Gaudry, Curator of Education at or 504-556-7669.
