Access-ABILITY is the Morris Museum’s pioneering program that welcomes all visitors and showcases the talents of members of our community living and thriving with disabilities.
The Morris Museum welcomes your school and adult program groups to experience our many unique offerings:
Coffee House Evenings
The Museum welcomes poets, writers, musicians, singers, and dramatists to perform in the friendly atmosphere of a casual “coffee house.”
Who said museum exhibitions are only meant to be “seen?” The Museum offers tours during which “touching” is not only allowed but encouraged.
Early Access Hours
If you prefer to enjoy the experience before the hustle and bustle of the day’s activities begins, we welcome you, your families, and friends to visit the Museum on scheduled Early Access Days.
Adventures in Learning
Let us bring the Museum to you with one of our Outreach programs in the sciences, humanities, and fine arts.
Education programs tailored to your special needs are available.

Upcoming Access-ABILITY Programs
Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 11:00AM* and 1:30PM
Early Access for Families with Disabilities at 9:30AM
Jeff Boyer takes bubbles to the max in this one-man extravaganza. It’s the craziest, most creative bubble show around. He juggles, sculpts, and builds with bubbles, makes fog-filled bubbles, and more. This show will engage and delight audiences of all ages.
Families attending Early Access can enjoy the Morris Museum and a hands-on bubble activity before the show.
When making reservations, mention “Accessibility” and receive a special combination price of $13 per person for Museum Admission, a bubble activity, and a relaxed performance.
*Sensory Friendly performance
Beauty and the Beast
Thursday, August 2, 2018, 11:00AM* and 1:30PM
Based on the original story by Madame Leprince De Beaumont, this production has all the magic and mystery that we have come to expect from this charming tale plus some new characters that add to the fun on stage.
To find the true love and heart of the Beast, the Beauty must see through his outward appearance. This story is presented by Paper Moon Puppet Theatre of New Jersey.
*Sensory Friendly performances are theatre experiences in which the environment and typical “rules of attendance” have been relaxed to accommodate individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and the families and professionals who support them.
Group Rate available for groups of 20 or more: $9
Combination Ticket (Museum Admission & Theatre): $15
The Morris Museum Access-ABILITY project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
