MassMu Sensory Room
Please note: If you would like to use the Sensory Room during your visit, please ask the front desk attendant.
The Massillon Museum has a dedicated goal to create accessible spaces with ancillary programming for all visitors with physical, developmental, cognitive, or learning disabilities. The journey toward becoming an accessible museum means removing barriers to learning and providing every opportunity for marginalized audiences to engage with the museum space in a multitude of ways.
The MassMu Sensory Room is a devoted 468-square-foot space on the lower level of the Museum. This unique room is an adaptable space for Museum guests with vision, auditory, physical, and cognitive disabilities. It is open during all Museum hours as a free and accessible space for any museum visitor yet outfitted specifically for individuals with the aforementioned disabilities in mind. The Room is sensory friendly, with adjustable elements alterable to individual preference, such as sound and lighting levels.
Because of the generous support of Puffin Foundation West, Ltd., the Museum now has a calming place for not only individuals with sensory challenges, but also caregivers with over-stimulated toddlers, mothers who need to breastfeed, and any other guest who may need the room for personal reasons. The Sensory Room is a flexible space serving a distinct need, and we are honored to offer it as a safe haven for all. Amenities include multiple modes of seating, yoga ball and mat, weighted blanket, sound machine, noise-cancelling headphones, a tactile felt and Lego wall, and sensory toys.
