  • This is a hidden gem, we learned a lot visiting this museum.
  • Ok. Accessible entrance is a bit out of the way but exists. Did not notice any baby changing stations in the women's bathroom. Student at the desk was friendly and helpful. We signed with the staff so not sure if there are always interpreters around for people who don't sign. We did see a tour group with a signing guide and an English speaking guide. The section on the first Deaf president of the school was really good. I hope the school invests some more in the museum to modernize it to help share the cool history of the school and showcase the school's current endeavors. If you are in the neighborhood check out the Starbucks nearby where all staff must sign ASL. Don't worry if you don't know ASL, you can order by pointing or writing.
