Sensory-Friendly Playtime at Edwardsville Children’s Museum

For younger kiddos or children with sensory sensitivities, a busy museum can be an overwhelming experience. At Edwardsville Children’s Museum, we want to create a space where every child feels safe to play, explore, and just be their incredible little self!

If your child is not ready to play during general admission, you can reserve ECM for private playtime, creating a one-of-a-kind adventure for your friends and family. It’s also ideal for small playgroups who are looking for safe, indoor fun year-round.
