PlayLab Accessibility Day

About this recurring event

Groups of visitors with disabilities can discover science through playful learning experiences that fit their individual needs.

PlayLab Accessibility Days take place on Tuesdays in the Crown Family PlayLab when it is closed to the general public. This event is included with museum admission, but groups must register in advance to ensure that they have 45 minutes of private fun and exploration. 

Perfect for special education school groups, community organizations, family support networks, and disability camps, this event is staffed with educators who understand the needs of children and adults with disabilities. The PlayLab is accessible to guests who use wheelchairs or need to avoid stairs. We can also make certain adjustments to the space, including minimizing sound and lighting and providing adult-sized chairs. 

Please e-mail accessibilityeducator@fieldmuseum.org or call 312.665.7545 to register your group.
