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, July 30, 2022
9–10:30 a.m.
Theme: Mini City
FREE, registration is required.

Guests will meet at 520 Royal Street at 9 a.m. to visit two exhibitions that will be modified to be sensory friendly: Making Mardi Gras and Robert Tannen’s Jackson Square. After touring the exhibitions, guests can try hands-on “mini” activities. Build a mini town square using Legos and magnetic tiles. Decorate your own mini-Mardi Gras float. Create a vibrant, mini 3-D paper shotgun house. Whether you like building or coloring, there’s something fun for everyone!

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