  1. I am a nurse and have a patient that’s wheelchair bound. Would he be able to participate in any activities if we came for a visit? Are you wheelchair accessible?

    Thanks so much

    • Hi Cindy.

      Most of our activities are accessible or adaptable to guests in wheelchairs depending on how large the chair is. Some of our older original exhibits are the ones least adaptable. If you find you need assistance when you visit, let me or one of my staff members know, and we’ll be happy to help you. I have a degree in special education, so we are working on improving accessibility as we continue developing the museum. I look forward to meeting you when you come in.

      Melissa Rushin Irr, Executive Director
