Museum of Innovation and Science (miSci)
Located in Schenectady, New York, miSci is a center for learning, imagination, and creativity that presents exhibitions, programs, and events designed with its mission in mind: to inspire people to celebrate and explore science and technology – past, present, and future. It is housed in a 44,270-square-foot facility that includes gallery space, the Suits-Beuche Planetarium, and classrooms. The Museum’s collections and archives include more than 15,000 science and technology artifacts, and more than two million photographs documenting the history of electricity, electronics, and the impact of technological change.
miSci offers SenseAble Science, a monthly event geared towards a sensory-friendly experience for neurodiverse individuals and their families to visit the region’s science center, enjoy the exhibits, and see the planetarium. Visit www.misci.org to learn more about SenseAble Science, including program dates and available times. Additional supports are available for guests who need them, including social stories for use in advance of their visit, ear plugs for noise reduction, and a dedicated quiet space.
