A trip to the Dallas Arts District can be fulfilling without overstimulation, and there's plenty of sensory-friendly options to explore. Both the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and the Nasher Sculpture Center provide Sensory Days. At the DMA, the museum is opened early on select days for families to enjoy the galleries, art and activities in a calmer environment. This free online guide tailored specifically for visitors with sensory-friendly needs is also available.
At the Nasher Sculpture Center, a "Quiet Room" is available on the basement level for children who need a break. The center also hosts intimate early evening events geared for children with sensory processing challenges throughout the year. To find out more about Sensory Day events at both museums, click here.
