The Morton Arboretum is hosting Enchanted Railroad Sensory Friendly Times, a sensory-friendly hour to experience the annual model railroad display every Tuesday and Sunday evening during the Enchanted Railroad Exhibit. Since some children may be overstimulated by the sights and sounds of the Enchanted Railroad, special times have been created to accommodate these families.

Registration will be capped at 40 guests at each time slot so that families can enjoy a crowd-free space. The volume of railroad display noises will be reduced and sensory tools will be available to help ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.

Fees and admission
Admission to The Morton Arboretum and the Enchanted Railroad Sensory Friendly Times is waived with advance registration.

Registration information
Please be mindful that this event is designed for individuals with disabilities and sensory processing needs; siblings and family members are welcome to attend.

Online registration will open January 6th, 2020

For more information please email specialevents@mortonarb.org.

The Enchanted Railroad is accessible to people who use a wheelchair and to guests who need to avoid stairs. If additional accommodations are needed before your visit, please let us know on the registration form.
