The Museum understands that some adults and children either cannot tolerate wearing a mask or should not wear a mask for medical reasons. With guidance from the agency responsible for enforcing the ADA, local health experts, and Sensory & Autism professionals, CMC is offering the following reasonable accommodations for guests who cannot visit the Museum due to the mask policy.
