Sensory-Friendly MOXI

We offer sensory-friendly backpacks filled as an opportunity for children and adults with autism, sensory processing disorders, and/or other cognitive disabilities and their families to experience MOXI.

Please be aware of the follow:

  • Select exhibits generate a lot of noise + light including the Sound Machine, Reactable, Spinetic Energy Sculpture, Ring Launcher and From Here to There.
  • Hand dryers in all restrooms.
  • The Innovation Workshop and Highland Santa Barbara Foundation Mountain View Terrace will be designated comfort spaces.
  • Printed sensory-friendly maps available.

As always, sensory backpack kits with resources like noise-reducing headphones or earmuffs, fidget spinners, and more will be available for checkout from the front desk. Additionally, paid Personal Care Assistants accompanying a guest with a disability will be admitted for free as always. Read more about MOXI’s accessibility resources here.
