Sensory needs backpacks for guests may be checked out at no charge from the Reception Desk on a first-come, first-served basis. An ID is required as a deposit. Backpacks are available for both children and adults, and include sunglasses, fidget toys, communication cards, weighted lap pads, and noise-reducing headphones.
Afternoon visits are often much quieter at the museum. Please be aware that some areas of the farms, like the Blacksmith Shop and animal pens, may be loud or have offensive smells.
