    Help the Museum of Science with Access Testing

    A message from the Museum of Science:

    The Museum of Science, Boston is committed to the inclusion of people with disabilities and strives to create an environment that is inviting, engaging, and accessible for everyone.  To work toward achieving this goal, there are times throughout the year when the Museum seeks people with a variety of abilities and disabilities to help improve the accessibility of our Museum.  Hearing from people with disabilities expands our knowledge about the museum experience and informs how we design museum offerings, such as exhibits and programs, in the future.

    We are now seeking visitors with a range of disabilities (including, but not limited to, sensory, physical, and cognitive disabilities) who would like to be contacted to test new exhibit prototypes and explore the museum.  Interested participants will come to the Museum of Science to interact with exhibit prototypes or explore other existing museum experiences.  Testing could last anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes and will always include free admission to the Museum of Science exhibit halls for the day and free parking in the Museum’s garage.

    If you would like to help the Museum of Science become more accessible by providing feedback during an upcoming testing session, please fill out this online form.

    This form asks for your contact information as well as some details about the group you plan to visit the Museum with.  If you prefer to fill out this form over the phone instead of online, please contact Stephanie Iacovelli, a Research and Evaluation Assistant, at 617-589-4438.  You may also email her with any questions at siacovelli@mos.org.
