Mornings at the Museum
The Children’s Museum of Acadiana is hosting monthly sensory-friendly mornings. These offerings are exclusive to families of children with ASD (Autism spectrum disorder) or sensory processing disorders. We limit the number of families who can attend, turn down sounds and lights, and provide adaptive equipment such as noise-reducing headphones and weighted vests. Best of all, admission is completely free for participating families thanks to The Stuller Family Foundation.
S.T.E.A.M. Kids Sundays
Learning can be fun! S.T.E.A.M Kids Sundays are filled with education enrichment activities offered on the last Sunday of each month between 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm to CMA guests. CMA educators have identified many interactive STEM activities that expose kids to a wide variety of STEM education concepts and augment knowledge they learn in school.
Located in the Museum’s Courtyard, Harmony Park features a commercial-grade play structure offering families an outside “hands-on” experience that inspires physical activity, interactivity and creative play. Open at no cost during normal operating hours and after hours for special events. cmalaf/calendar.
Very nice set up for children to play with real-life experiences. Vet, ambulance, dentist, fun bubbles, groceries, and more. The experience is a timed entrance and that allows more space for the children without being rushed. – Sharon S.
It was awesome! We loved every moment of our visit and we will come back again! – Katina G.
Great fun for the kids. All of the areas were very well done. My kids of 3 1/2 and 2 had a blast. We are very strongly considering a membership. – Taylor D.
My grandkids loved it. Still popular and good wholesome fun while learning after 25 years ago of me taking my kids. – Michele N.
