Education: Accessibility and Special Needs

We are accessible. Wheelchairs and stools are available at the coat check. American Sign Language interpretation, assistive-listening devices, touchable objects, and raised-line drawings are available to school groups free of charge with advance notification.

Lessons for Students with Special Needs

These 60- to 75-minute museum educator–led gallery experiences are tailored to the specific needs of each self-contained class. The specialized curriculum may include activities involving sensory learning, touch objects, and art-making. A telephone appointment with your assigned museum educator is required. The maximum class size for these lessons is fifteen students. An adult chaperone is recommended for every five students in the group. There is a fee of $1.50 per student.
