Natural Awakenings Ann Arbor Michigan

Special Access Hours for ‘My Turn’ Exhibit

Feb 01, 2018 12:00AM
The University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is participating for the second year, in a program created for families affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD). “My Turn” was developed by the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum to implement accessible and inclusive programming, particularly for families affected by ASD. From 10 a.m. to noon, February 11, UMMA will open exclusively for a sensory-friendly program allowing families to enjoy art in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Families will have access to special hands-on activities in the galleries that will help encourage exploration and discovery.

The museum will offer sensory reducing accessories and a quiet area with tactile toys for families that need to step away from the activities for a bit. This event is recommended for ages 5 to 18, but all are welcome to participate. “My Turn” programs are coordinated by the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum and take place on second Sundays of each month throughout the year.


Registration is required and opens one month before the event date. Visit to register. For more information, call 734-647-0522 or visit
