Sensory Room & Bags

Spectra has partnered with KultureCity to make Alerus Center programs and events sensory inclusive. This new initiative will promote an accommodating and positive experience for all guests and fans with sensory issues visiting the facility.


Alerus Center staff have been trained by leading medical professionals on how to recognize guests and fans with sensory needs and how to handle a sensory overload situation.

Sensory Bags Sponsored by Altru

Sensory bags that are sponsored by Altru and equipped with noise-canceling headphones (provided by Puro Sound Labs), fidget tools, verbal cue cards (produced in conjunction with Boardmaker) and weighted lap pads will also be available to all guests upon request.

Sensory Room Sponsored by Altru

This space will be available to all guests and fans visiting Alerus Center who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. Medical professionals from Altru were consulted throughout the design process in order to create a quieter and more secure environment. This room is located near entrance 6, and is open to guests during all events (both ticketed and not).

KultureCity App

Prior to attending an event, families can download the free KultureCity App where one can view what sensory features are available and where they can access them. Also, on the App is the Social Story which will provide a preview of what to expect while enjoying an event at Alerus Center.
