As part of our commitment to accessibility, Ford’s Theatre recently partnered with the Smithsonian Institution to host a sensory-friendly Morning at the Museum. We built on the lessons learned through our sensory-friendly performance of The Wiz to make our museum easily accessible to those with sensory sensitivities.
Ford's Theatre has made it a priority to increase access to the historic site. As part of an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Museums Empowered grant, we hosted a two-day workshop with leaders in the field of museum accessibility to evaluate our site needs and brainstorm solutions. Read about what we learned and how it helped us develop a roadmap of solutions to implement in the future.
