    This program is for individuals of all ages with special needs and their families to enjoy early access to the National World War II Museum with modifications to make the experience more sensory friendly.

    Sensory Friendly Mornings are available on the last Saturday of each month. The Museum will modify exhibits by lowering sound volume in louder areas. A limited number of sensory bags from KultureCity will be available for guests on-site. Campus signage and the KultureCity App will alert visitors to areas where headphones are recommended, as well as designated Quiet Areas. A private Quiet Room is available by request.

    Pre-registered guests will start their visit by checking into the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion at 8:00 a.m., where they will begin their self-guided experience before the Museum opens to the public. At 9:00 a.m. Sensory Friendly Morning visitors will have access to the entire campus, including early admission to the remaining pavilions.

    Tickets for Sensory Friendly Mornings are complimentary during the 8:00 a.m.–9:00 a.m. hour and are subject to availability. Advanced reservations are highly recommended. Reserve tickets here.
