Sensory Hours at Mid-Hudson Children's Museum
Sensory Hours allow families with young children with autism and other sensory integration challenges to explore MHCM exhibits in a modified environment with reduced sound, designated quiet spaces, extra visual signage and sensory aids.
Sensory Hours are held the second Sunday of each month from 9:00 am – 11:00 am. Preregistration is required, as space will be limited. Please note: Sensory Hours are for young children ages 0-8 as MHCM gallery spaces and exhibits are designed for little kid bodies.
Cost: MHCM Members: $8; non-members: $10

Sensory Hours are presented in partnership with the Anderson Center for Autism and the Dutchess County “ThinkDIFFERENTLY” Initiative, and are made possible with support from Stewart’s Shops.
Mid-Hudson Children's Museum
Their mission is to enlighten minds through a fun and creative learning environment where hands-on experiences spark curiosity, discovery and the joy of exploration. Their vision is to be an extraordinary educational beacon in the Hudson River Valley where discovery leads to lifelong learning for all. In 2002, MHCM relocated to the City of Poughkeepsie's historic waterfront, to better serve the Mid-Hudson region as an Educational Resource Center, Family Destination and Tourist Attraction.
