Space Center Houston invites people of all ages diagnosed with conditions such as, but not limited to, autism spectrum disorder and sensory processing disorder, to explore science and space exploration in a reduced sensory environment.

Sensory Friendly Events, presented by United Airlines, provides a sensory-supportive setting including modified lighting, music and sound effects. The number of tickets are limited for this exclusive event to allow visitors to enjoy Space Center Houston in a sensory friendly atmosphere without large crowds.

To accommodate more families, we offer Sensory Friendly Event tickets at the special lower price of $15.95 and children three years and younger get in free.

In accordance with state, local and CDC guidelines and for the health and safety of everyone, guests ages two and older and employees are required to wear face coverings. We understand how this can be very challenging for some individuals with sensory sensitivities. If you are unable to wear a face covering, we ask that you visit Space Center Houston when face coverings are no longer recommended by the CDC. Please review our Know Before You Go Guide and Stellar Discovery Guide to help plan your visit. For more information, please contact accessibility@spacecenter.org.
