Via Aquarium, in collaboration with our dedicated team, has crafted an environment that caters to the sensory needs of children and adults with autism. We recognize that the typical hustle and bustle of public spaces can be overwhelming for some, so we’ve taken special care to create a serene and inclusive atmosphere for everyone.

Our special day kicks off at 9:00 AM, granting you early access to the mesmerizing world of the ViaAquarium. By opening the doors  before regular hours, we provide a tranquil setting for families to explore the aquatic wonders at their own pace.

Thanks to the generosity of our friends at ViaAquarium, we are thrilled to offer free admission to the aquarium during our exclusive event hours from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. This means you can enjoy this remarkable experience at no cost.

To ensure that every visitor can enjoy a comfortable and unhurried experience, we kindly request that you register in advance. Simply visit our website at www.nyassembly.gov/mem/Angelo-Santabarbara/ or give us a call at (518) 382-2941 to secure your spot. Space is limited, so don’t wait!

Autism Acceptance Day at Via Aquarium is more than just an event; it’s a chance for our community to come together, connect, and celebrate the diverse strengths of individuals with autism. We encourage you to extend this invitation to friends and fellow families who might benefit from this wonderful day of aquatic exploration.
