Sensory-Friendly Offerings

Mall of America® and Crayola Experience have partnered with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), a global leader in online training and certification programs, to become a Certified Autism Center (CAC). We aim to provide visitors with autism and other sensory disorders an enjoyable and memorable place to visit.

Sensory Resources

Crayola Experience Mall of America offers many valuable resources for guests of all backgrounds, including:

  • Staff trained in autism sensitivity and awareness to better assist autistic or sensory-sensitive guests.
  • Sensory guides for each attraction, detailing sensory impacts like sound, light + touch—allowing families to plan activities that suit their needs.
  • Designated low-sensory areas within the facility, offering a calming space for guests who need a break from sensory stimulation.
  • Availability of sensory aids like noise-canceling headphones and weighted lap pads, enhancing comfort for guests with sensory sensitivities.

See any Crayola Experience team member for more information about these resources.
