‘Sensory Sundays’: inclusive museum experience

The Bank of Canada Museum presents “Sensory Sundays,” a special initiative designed to accommodate individuals with sensory sensitivities.

On select Sundays throughout 2024, visitors to the Ottawa, Ont., Bank of Canada Museum will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a sensory-friendly environment filled with engaging activities. From hands-on exploration of artifacts to guided tours showcasing touchable exhibits, Sensory Sundays promise an enriching experience for all attendees.

The Museum has implemented several features to enhance the sensory experience, including reduced ambient sounds and additional directional signage to aid navigation. Complimentary noise-canceling headphones will also be available at the front desk for those who may benefit from them, while a designated quiet area offers a sanctuary for individuals seeking respite from sensory stimuli.

The remaining Sundays this year include March 31, April 28, May 26, June 16, July 28, Aug. 25, Sept. 29, Oct. 27, and Nov. 24. Programming includes an early opening from 9-10 a.m. and sensory activities continuing until noon, offering an inclusive and enriching cultural experience.
