Sensory Friendly Sundays take place the third Sunday of every month at PFAC from 1 pm until 2 pm for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences to have a fun, enjoyable and learning experience in a comfortable and accepting environment! Our Sensory Friendly days are a great way to explore exhibitions, during quieter times. You can also enjoy self-guided art activities in our Hands On For Kids Gallery. Gallery Guides are available. A quiet sensory zone is available with noise deafening headphones. Accessibility: PFAC welcomes all visitors and is committed to making its programs and services accessible to everyone. Wheelchairs and gallery stools are available at no charge. Guide Dogs are permitted in the galleries and a water bowl is available upon request. Large caption panel copy and gallery guides are available – but advance notice is needed.
