The LA Children’s Museum in New Orleans has a new exhibit called Access/ABILITY. It is a six segment focused on disability awareness, illustrating that with or without disabilities, we are all participants in the world. Some of the things you can do in this exhibit are:
- Try out a wheelchair obstacle course and a Multisensory City Walk.
- Learn phrases in American Sign Language, type your name in Braille, and communicate using pictures.
- Ride a hand-pedaled bike, and create art that you can experience through sight, touch, and sounds.
Yes, this is a children’s museum but I think a lot of adults could benefit from this exhibit too. Employee field trip anyone?
