Access-ABILITY Programs


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:

Art Exhibitions
Original artwork by artists with disabilities will be showcased at the Museum, in coordination with local school groups and adult programs. Artists, and their families and friends, are invited to an Opening Reception to celebrate their talents in painting, sculpture, photography, and design.

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.

Touch Tours
Who said museum exhibitions are only meant to be “seen?” The Museum offers tours during which “touching” is not only allowed but encouraged.

Coffee House Evenings
The Museum welcomes poets, writers, musicians, singers, and dramatists to perform in the friendly atmosphere of a casual “coffee house.”

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.

The Morris Museum Access-ABILITY project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.


 

UPCOMING ACCESS-ABILITY PROGRAMS

In the first part of 2019, we have partnered with local schools and service providers (Spectrum 360, WAE Center, ECLC of NJ and Horizon Elementary School) to host several art exhibitions. People with or without special needs were invited to come and appreciate the works of art and the artists who created them. For the summer we had a special out-of-this-world theatrical adventure to share.

Stay tuned for more programming this fall!
