Services for Students with Disabilities

Families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders are invited to attend this free program in a less sensory-stimulating and crowd-free environment. This two-hour UMMNH event will allow My Turn visitors to explore the galleries at their own pace, view a planetarium show, and participate in ASD-friendly hands-on activities with specially trained staff and docents. The Museum will also offer a “quiet room” for families who need to step away from the activities for a bit. The Museum of Natural History is currently located in the 90-year-old Ruthven Museums Building which is not fully air-conditioned. Please dress accordingly.
