access & special needs
The Knock Knock Children’s Museum was specially designed to ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn through play.
- Most areas of the museum are free of barriers, which provides full access to our outstanding experiences for those visitors with special needs.
- The museum is accessible by car or by public transportation. In front, you will find a white-curbed loading zone where visitors can load and unload.
- Our visitor parking lot includes handicapped parking spaces and ramp access. In addition, all Learning Zones, public restrooms and outdoor facilities are wheelchair accessible.
- The museum has Braille picture books, weighted lap blankets, stuffed animals and more for children with special needs. Ask a staff member for more information.
- The Quiet Cabin provides sensory experiences and a place for a child to take a break from the busy action of the museum.
- Both First Aid and Lost & Found are located at the Information Desk.
- A Sensory Learning Zone Map can be found here.
- Preview A Day at Knock Knock Social Story and A Field Trip at Knock Knock Social Story before your visit.
sensory friendly programs
Beginning in July, Knock Knock will host a monthly low sensory program, allowing children to experience and enjoy the museum’s Learning Zones without the noise and crowds common during regular hours. This program is an exclusive event for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or sensory processing differences to have a fun, enjoyable and interactive learning experience in a comfortable and accepting environment!
