Visiting the Museum Social Story

A “Social Story” is a tool that helps individuals prepare for a specific experience by explaining what will happen and what they can expect. Social Stories were originally developed for children with autism, but are useful for all people when embarking on new experiences.

Certain works of art may not be on view at times and certain galleries may be closed for renovation or reinstallation. Access to particular galleries or works of art can be determined by calling the Museum. We regret any inconvenience to visitors.
