Portland Children’s Museum works hard to ensure all families have access to the Museum and feel a strong sense of welcome, safety, and respect. We invite families with children experiencing disabilities to visit the Museum during our regular operating hours as well as our monthly Access Play events. These low sensory playtimes are calmer, less crowded, and a great way to habituate your child to the Museum’s exhibits under minimal stress. In partnership with our friends at FACT, Autism Society of Oregon, Swindells Resource Center and others, the Museum is pleased to offer Access Play as a FREE event reserved for families with children experiencing disabilities, and their friends.

We’re excited to have Pet Partners join us again for a Cuddle With Me session where children can read to, interact with and, most of all, snuggle with a therapy dog during Access Play.

Every third Tuesday of the month!
