Mobility & Sensory Needs Field Trips
Every student is welcome at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. We are committed to providing the highest quality visit for each and every guest. We are pleased to inform Teachers that the Museum is ADA Compliant for students with mobility needs. The Museum also offers resources and accommodations for guests with sensory processing needs.
The following items and resources can be accessed throughout the museum:
For guests with sensory needs we offer check out Sensory Backpacks at no cost that guests may take with them as they explore the Museum. The backpacks include a weighted dinosaur, noise-canceling headphones and a piece of chewlry that may help guests regulate their sensory processing during their visit. In order to check out backpacks, you’ll need to leave a form of ID at the front desk and fill out a small information form. Every backpack is sanitized after use. There are 9 backpacks available on a first come first served basis.
Field Trips can be overstimulating for anyone. It’s loud, it’s a new place and routines have been upended. To ensure that every student is able to enjoy their visit, we have a sensory room available inside the Children’s Museum and also keep the Doodler Room inside our Innovation Studios free from groups. These quiet areas allow students a break from the cacophony and the space to self-regulate as needed.
