Wild Rumpus Bookstore
2720 West 43rd St.
Minneapolis, MN 55410
Sensory-Friendly Story Time will take place before the store opens to the general public. No music until after the store opens...except for the songs we'll sing together! Small fidget objects will be available for children to hold if they choose. There will be a clear schedule for story time with visual cues. As with all of our story times, this is a no judgement zone! We all have unique needs and ways of expressing ourselves, and we at Wild Rumpus welcome and celebrate those differences. Cost: FREE.

AMC is proud to partner with the Autism Society of America to offer unique movie showings where lights are turned up and the sound is turned down so viewers can get up, dance, walk, shout, or sing. The Sensory Friendly Film program is available on the second and fourth Saturday (family-friendly) and Tuesday evenings (mature audiences) of every month. In Minnesota, these showings are available at Eden Prairie Mall 18 and AMC Rosedale 14. Click here for specific showtimes and offerings.
