Sensory Backpacks
Families love visiting Wonderscope, but the various levels of light, sounds, and activity in the museum can sometimes be very overwhelming for children with sensory challenges.

To make the Wonderscope experience more accessible and enjoyable for these families, Wonderscope offers sensory backpacks. These backpacks, generously donated by Variety KC, contain a collection of items that help protect the senses from being overstimulated.

Each Sensory Backpack includes the following:
– Noise canceling headset
– Weighted blanket
– Dark glasses
– Fidget toys 

Sensory Backpacks can be checked out at the Welcome Desk on a first-come, first-served basis free of charge. Visitors are simply asked leave their ID at the desk. Backpack items will be cleaned and sanitized upon return and prior to reentering circulation.
