Especially for Me: Free Visually Impaired Family Evening
Join us for an evening at the museum especially for families experiencing a visual impairment. Play, explore, experiment, and imagine in the accessible Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods while we are closed to the general public. Light dinner, including a gluten-free option, will be provided. Pre-registration required at http://bit.ly/VIEveningOct2019 as space is limited. Tonight’s Program: Squishy Circuits! Stop by the Community Gallery from 6:00pm – 7:00pm to squish and sculpt as you explore some simple circuitry. We’ll discover the conductive properties of a childhood favorite, as we sink our hands into playdough to make LEDs light up, buzzers buzz, and motors whir. Resources available to prepare for your visit include Story Guides to the Museum and Discovery Woods, as well a Sensory Guide. These are available both online at http://bit.ly/EspeciallyforMe and at our Admissions Desk. You might also visit the Exhibits section of our website, and review our Tips for Visiting. Please note that Discovery Woods is open year-round, but closes at dusk and will not be open for evening events during the winter months.
