Final B&O Railroad Museum Sensory Day of 2019
Features Special Guest!

October 20th
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us for this special event to wrap up our 2019 Sensory Days. Andy Fletch, a published train illustrator, will be on site doing live drawing demonstrations as well as giving a drawing lesson to all of our Sensory Day guests. Andy is on the spectrum himself and feels very passionately about giving back to the community.

The B&O is proud to offer Sensory Friendly Days for children and guests with Autism Spectrum Disorders and sensory processing differences. The museum will open one hour early to accommodate our guests and their families. This more accessible museum experience features added signage and modified lighting and sounds, as well as the presence of additional volunteers and staff to support visitors throughout their stay. If smaller crowds, specialized activities, less sound and light stimuli, and a designated quiet room will make it easier for you or your child to explore all that the B&O has to offer, this is the day for you!

Event is free with general admission.

To RSVP and receive a specialized sensory story, please contact Rebecca Funk at .
