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 FREE 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. Thanks to our generous sponsors, Shriners Hospitals for Children and Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, the Museum is pleased to offer Access Play as a FREE event reserved for families with children experiencing disabilities, and their friends. Thanks also to our partner organizations; FACT Oregon, Autism Society of Oregon, Swindells Resource Center, and others.
