The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh will host a sensory-friendly evening for families and visitors with special needs.
It's set for 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., May 25, inside the museum's Nature Exploration Center. It will stay open late so visitors can experience the exhibits during a less busy, quieter period of time.
During the event, visitors can meet scientists and live animals; watch a low-sensory screening of the 3D movie, “Flight of the Butterflies;” and tour the museum's latest traveling exhibit, “RACE: Are We So Different?”
Registration is not required. But if you register before the event, you'll get a schedule of events and other materials to prepare you for your visit a week before the event. It's open to all ages and free (except for ticket fees for the movie).
