Super Hero Nights
Every child is unique. Each grows and learns in his or her own special way. And without exception, all children love to play. Kids with disabilities are no different. Whether a child’s disability is mild or severe, obvious or not, that child is first and foremost a kid – which means he or she will have the natural instinct to explore the world through play, just like any other child.
During Super Hero Nights, admission is free for families with children who have special needs. Enjoy a quieter and welcoming environment throughout our exhibits.
When: Last Sunday of every month from 6-7:30pm
Who: Families with children who have special needs
