Sensory-Friendly Morning at the MCA is a free, sensory-friendly program for neurodiverse visitors of all ages. Preregistered individuals and their families can visit the museum before it opens to the public and explore exhibitions at their own pace. Lobby lights are less intense and a quiet space is available for breaks.

Sensory-Friendly Morning aims to be a welcoming space to experience contemporary art in a judgment-free environment.


"MCA Chicago" is spelled out in white letters on a black background in three lines, with the letter H and I highlighted in yellow at the center, as if the logo is saying "hi."

The MCA strives to provide a welcoming and accessible experience for all our visitors.
