Deaf Day at the Creation Museum

I just received the following information from the Creation Museum and thought it was worth passing on.  I like seeing things like this, honoring and catering to the needs of the special needs community.  Hope some of you can take advantage of this!

Next Monday (September 6) will be our first “Deaf Day” at the Creation Museum. Much of the museum’s content is deaf-friendly every day, with very visual and open-captioned videos throughout the museum—but Deaf Day is specifically focused on providing the best possible museum experience for hearing-impaired visitors.

Over twenty volunteers, including several interpreters, will staff various areas of the museum. Deaf guests and their immediate families will receive buy-one-get-one free general admission to the museum on this special day.

And, speaking of the Creation Museum . . . there’s still time left to sign up to win a copy of Charlie & Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure here on my blog

fyi... here is a review of our visit last year. yOu are very correct..they are very hearing impaired friendly. (by Deaf day they are focusing on those that use ASL as their primary way of communicating. fyi. the hearing impaired who use Spoken English as their language of origin ..vs ASL.. may not find it as friendly a day i might think.)

If you are hearing impaired and visit the museum at ANY time, DO let them know. as you will see in my blog post, but in case you don't read it, they made sure the planetarium was captioned for our showing.
