Mother's Room

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!

We are pleased to announce the Family Museum has earned certification as a Certified Autism Center. This designation given by IBCCES (International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards) is awarded to organizations who have completed a training and review process to better serve individuals with sensory needs. Additionally, we host several sensory-friendly events throughout the year which offer lower lighting and sounds throughout the facility. We also offer quiet spaces for those that may need a break during their visit and special needs kits are available.

Special Needs Kits Available

The Family Museum is pleased to offer visitors a special sensory kit to assist those who may need support with calming children with special needs. Upon request, our Guest Services staff will gladly provide you with a kit filled with such items as calming brushes, sensory toys, and tools to assist children with tension that they may endure while playing at the Museum. Also, the Museum's staff is happy to provide you with a quiet low-lit room when necessary to help your child.
