Morning at the Museum is a Smithsonian program that provides access to a museum for individuals with cognitive and sensory processing disabilities. This program provides early entrance, pre-visit materials for participating families, a gallery scavenger hunt, design activities, and a “take a break” space. Working with Arup experience designers and acousticians, participants are invited to tune into the sound of the city, respond to the noise and music of NYC, then respond sonically, visually to craft and perform the sounds of the cityscape of their imagination.
This program is free and for all ages. Pre-Registration Required. To register, email email@example.com or call 917.809.6732.
Social narratives and sensory tools will be provided for this program. Find out about Cooper Hewitt’s accessibility services.
Accessibility initiatives are made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional funding is also provided by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
