You may experience feelings of fear during your tour. Participation is mandatory, and thus the tour is ADA compliant. Sensory-Friendly Sunday is offered to allow for citizens with special sensory needs to have the tour tailored to them, so they may fulfill the required attendance. Remember, this is for your protection.
