Mothers are welcome to nurse their children throughout the Museum, but for mothers looking for a private area, we offer a Mother's Room. This room is located next to the Welcome Desk. Ask staff at the Welcome Desk for access to the room.

We Are a Certified Autism Center!

Our organization has worked with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), a global leader in online training and certification programs, to be designated as a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC). Our staff has completed training and certification in best practices when assisting autistic individuals. By undergoing additional autism-specific training, the goal is for our team to be better equipped to provide better service and experiences to all. Click to learn more about Certified Autism Center™
