Sesame Street Comes to the Museum of Work and Culture

Meet Julia in a low-sensory environment during the museum's annual Labor Day Open House.

On September 3 the Museum of Work and Culture along with Rhode Island PBS, will host a low-sensory environment event for children to meet Julia who made her debut on Sesame Street in 2017 as the sweet and curious four-year-old-girl with autism. She is set to make an appearance during the Museum’s free annual Labor Day Open House where guests are invited to visit, interact and have their photo taken with the loveable character. Three meet-and-greet sessions will take place at 10 a.m., 11a.m., and noon, however, space is limited to thirty family groups per meet-and-greet session. Each group can include up to two adults and four children and all participating families will receive copies of We’re Amazing, 1, 2, 3!, a storybook featuring Julia and her friends from Sesame Street.

Color communication badges, hands-on activities and trained staff from the Rhode Island Consortium for Autism Research and Treatment will be on hand for children and their families. Registration is required.
