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. Participants will work with guest designer Genspace on a series of nature-inspired design activities– extracting DNA from strawberries, exploring the microscopic world, and engaging with a biodesign touch table.

 

This program is free and for all ages. Pre-Registration Required. To register, email access@cooperhewitt.zendesk.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.
