Sensory Friendly Open House
11/19/2023 | 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Visitors with sensory sensitivities will enjoy our free sensory-friendly Open Houses. These open houses will take place after the Glass Center is closed to the general public, so visitors may explore the space on their own time. The safe and welcoming environment includes a self-guided tour of Pittsburgh Glass Center’s 4 studios, gallery, and retail space, glassblowing demonstrations in our Hot Shop, as well as a designated chill zone with an activity appropriate for visitors of all ages.
Visitors are encouraged to borrow a sensory kit at our front desk. The kits include noise-canceling headphones, paper fans, fidget toys, and more items to help visitors with sensory sensitivities navigate the space.
To prepare for your visit, review details about accessibility at PGC which includes a preview of our building, as well as accessibility and sensory information.
If you would like to RSVP for this event in advance, please email us. This event also welcomes those who would like to drop in anytime throughout the timeframe.
