These kits are available at the Admissions Desk and may be picked up upon arrival. Sensory kits include a map of the Nasher Sculpture Center, a calming fabric object, a sequence chart, red/green light signs to show what may and may not be touched, and paper and pencils to draw with.
The Nasher offers a private space for visitors who may need to attend to personal needs. The quiet room may be requested at any point during your museum visit and offers resources such as weighted blankets, fidgets, low lights, and soothing music. To gain access to this room ask any staff member or security guard.
