Ford’s Theatre has made a commitment to increase access and inclusion to our museum and theatre. Hosting a Sensory-Friendly performance was a great way to welcome new audiences to our space in an environment designed to welcome and embrace everyone.
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.
