The Morton Arboretum is hosting Enchanted Railroad Sensory Friendly Times, a sensory-friendly hour to experience the annual model railroad display on select Tuesday and Sunday evenings during the Enchanted Railroad Exhibit (January – February). Since some people may be overstimulated by the sights and sounds of the Enchanted Railroad, special times have been created to accommodate these families.
Registration will be capped at 40 guests at each time slot so that families can enjoy a crowd-free space. The volume of railroad display noises will be reduced and sensory tools will be available to help ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.
This event is designed for individuals with disabilities and sensory processing needs; siblings and family members are welcome to attend. Free event but must pre-register online.
