“Children are great imitators. So give them something great to imitate.”


We are excited to announce that starting on Sunday, October 6th, The Children’s Museum at Holyoke will be partnering with the esteemed team at Learn in Motion to create a program specially designed for families with a child affected with sensory challenges, such as Sensory Processing Disorder or Autism (official diagnosis not required).

Our Sensory Sunday program will be held on the first Sunday of each month during special off hours. For sensory-sensitive visitors, our main museum space will have a more calming environment for your child with sensitivities to engage and explore. For sensory-seekers, Learn in Motion’s Chris & Hope Gibaldi will be on hand to guide your child through a specially crafted sensory obstacle course. There will also be handouts with tips on how you can best cater to your child’s unique ways of learning and living.

Here at the Children’s Museum at Holyoke, we strive to be an impactful community resource for your family. It is our hope that this program allows families who may typically avoid crowded or stimulating environments to come and join in on the fun.
