Fort Collins Museum of Discovery is pleased to offer a special opportunity for individuals and their families living with autism or other special needs. Enjoy shows in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater in an environment of acceptance and understanding.

Many others, not on the autism spectrum, also enjoy Sensory Friendly Films – it’s a great opportunity for families to meet, for siblings of children with autism to get to know other kids, and for anyone to enjoy a Dome show!

Let it Snow is an amazing holiday music spectacle, featuring a variety of festive classics from Frank Sinatra and Chuck Berry to Burl Ives and Brenda Lee. It includes a stunning finale by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The soundtrack is enhanced with colorful thematic animation and full-dome scenery.
