The CSS Neuse Museum in Kinston has partnered with non-profit organization KultureCity to provide a sensory inclusive experience for all museum programs and events.

Officials say the new initiative will make exploring the museum easier for visitors with sensory sensitivities, including people on the autism spectrum, as well as people with sensory processing disorders, PTSD and other needs.

Museum staff underwent training to better understand and interact with guests with differing sensory characteristics and sensory bags, equipped with noise-canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards, and weighted lap pads will also be available to all guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment.
