How We Embrace Accessibility

Sensory Friendly

Events Designed for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder

We proudly offer sensory-friendly experiences to guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

On sensory-friendly days, guests will be welcomed by staff members who have been trained to interact with patrons with ASD and lighting will be adjusted throughout the facility.

During shows, sounds are low and consistent, children can talk and leave their seats, and there’s a quiet zone in the lobby to bring quiet, contained beverages and peanut-free snacks.

Create-A-Puppet Workshop™ classrooms will be quieter and use simplified puppet designs. Meanwhile, the museum will integrate activities like touch tables and guided storytelling.

Fidget toys, social stories, sound-reducing headphones, and sunglasses are also available. Contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Wheelchair Access

Navigate Our Atrium, Museum and Other Facilities with Ease

The Center for Puppetry Arts is wheelchair accessible with ramp access and elevators for user by visitors with mobility concerns. If you have any additional questions about accessibility, please contact our ticket office to ask questions.

Customization

Contact the Ticket Office for Special Accommodations
