Beyond the Spectrum is a specially designed program for children ages 8–12 on the Autism Spectrum, including Asperger’s Syndrome, accompanied by a parent or caregiver. The program meets one Saturday per month from 10:30 am–12 pm. Each class lasts an hour and a half and combines gallery exploration with an art-making activity.

$9 per child (includes materials and Museum admission).

Enrollment

To enroll your child in any of the Beyond the Spectrum classes, please purchase tickets through the event listing below. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and are only available online. Tickets for the current week’s class will only be available for sale until 1 pm on the Wednesday before the class.

Although members receive free admission, a ticket is required for each child participating in the Beyond the Spectrum program.

Chaperones

One adult is admitted free with each purchased child ticket and also receives a discount on parking in Museum facilities. Additional adults $25.

Arrival

Please enter through the State Street Corporation Fenway Entrance and pick up your ticket(s) at a ticketing kiosk or at the admissions desk. We will meet in the Druker Family Pavilion, Community Room 159. Please meet your instructors in Room 159 by 10:20 am.

Cancellations and Confirmation

A minimum of twelve children is required in order for the class to run. We regret that at this time we cannot accommodate more than 25 enrolled children per class. Parents will receive an e-mail confirmation or be notified of cancellations and full classes, and will have the opportunity to apply their child’s ticket to a future program date if a class is cancelled.

Groups

Special arrangements can be made for groups of ten or more children who are unable to visit the Museum on Saturdays at 10:30 am. To learn more, please visit Artful Adventures.
