Summer Sensations
Saturday, July 27

Join us at the Purple Museum for an enjoyable evening with summertime-themed activities throughout the museum that encourage hands-on learning. Our staff is prepared to ensure a successful and more relaxed experience for your family than a typical day at the museum. You will have a chance to get to know other families and learn about local resources available to yours.

Halloween Trick or Treat
Thursday, October 31
Join us for Halloween family fun at this fall’s Play Your Way event designed for children with autism, ages 2-15, and their families.

It’s going to be a frighteningly fangtastic time with sensory activities and Halloween fun. We encourage all families to come dressed in their favorite costumes!

The event is being held in the early evening with limited attendance so your child can enjoy all the fun things the museum has to offer, just with fewer people and less noise and bright lights. Our goal is for your family to have a positive experience… not to mention, a wickedly awesome time!
