Sensory Play and Inclusion
For Guests with Sensory Sensitivities or Sensory Processing Disorders
Children's Museum of Atlanta strives to be an inclusive and accessible space that considers neurodiversity. Museum staff members are on-site with sensory solutions and ready to help guests. Please consider the following information and resources.
Adaptive Play: Sensory Friendly Sessions
It's a Sunday morning at CMA and things seem to be quieter than usual. On select Sundays during Session A, we offer a calmer and quieter environment for those with developmental disabilities or sensory sensitivities.
Sensory Friendly Sessions offer a Museum modified experience by turning off exhibit sounds, reducing light, and limiting admission.
We are thrilled to offer Sensory Friendly Sessions every Sunday during Autism Acceptance Month.

Sensory Support in The Museum
Located in Leaping into Learning, CMA offers a quiet space when guests need a break. Visitors can ask a team member to unlock the Resource Room at any time if available. Only one family is permitted at a time.
Some areas in the Museum can be loud and overstimulating. Headphones are available at the front desk and can be checked out at any time.
Callie The Therapy Dog
Families can meet Callie the Therapy Dog on the CMA Stage most Sensory Friendly Sessions. Callie enjoys soft sensory play with pets and snuggles.
