The Museum of Science Boston is now offering monthly shows with looser house rules, softer volume, and raised house light levels to foster a more comfortable environment.

These special showings kick off with Big Bird’s Adventure: One World, One Sky, at 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 3 and Dec. 1.

This show’s environment, which will be rolled out to the Museum’s other planetarium shows, can benefit individuals with autism, dementia, sound/light sensitivities, and a wide range of needs. Audience members should feel comfortable to talk amongst themselves and move from their seats, bringing the planetarium experience and the wonders of the night sky to all families, regardless of sensory needs, ability, or age.
