Museum modifications

With the support of our community partners, we provide a supportive space, specialized staff, and inclusive opportunities to engage and support your learner. We currently provide the accommodations below and are constantly looking for ways to expand our support!

  • Smaller, controlled crowds to create a calm, uncrowded environment ideal for families in need of accommodations for high sensitivity to sensory stimuli, limited mobility, and generally in need of a calmer, quieter space.

  • Accommodating accessories of your choice to make your experience suit your needs. Sunglasses, headphones, and earplugs are all available at the front desk, free of charge.

  • Assistive signage to help guide your family towards learning environments that best suit your needs—marking high sensory, low sensory, calming, and tactile areas.

  • Exhibit modifications to create calmer environments for families with high-sensitivities to stimuli, including decreased noise, soothing light changes, and more.

  • Specialized staff to support your family's learning and play needs; staff are specially trained through consultation with community partners by Any Baby Can and the Region 20 Special Education Department.

  • Customized creative activities, created in collaboration with Artful Start and our Art Education Director, will provide tactile art experiences to engage your learner's creativity in comfortable, supportive ways.
