Great Connections

April 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Connect with your family, with other families and with resources in the community.

Great Connections is a monthly, sensory-friendly program for children with special needs and their families. In April, in conjunction with our community partner the Council for Exceptional Children Suncoast Chapter 176, we will host a special Spring Fling themed edition of this favorite program.  In addition to the usual fun of enjoying the museum gallery floor children can opt to participate in:

  • Complimentary family photos with a bunny costumed character (optional of course) generously provided by photographer Eric Walley
  • Furry critter petting opportunity
  • Egg hunt
  • Prizes & snacks generously provided by the Council for Exceptional Children

For this event, Great Explorations Children’s Museum will open early for children with special needs and their families to enjoy Great Connections, a sensory-friendly event. Great Explorations will close to the public, offer discounted admission and provide a “cool down” room for families who need to take a break.

$5 per person

Free for Great Ex members!
