SciTech currently does not have formal sensory days. However, the afternoons (after 2pm) are usually more quiet. In addition, let the staff know at the front desk, and we can turn off some of the louder noise exhibits. We can also give you access to the Early Learning Center for a cool-down space if you need it.
