Creating a museum experience that’s accessible for all strongly aligns with the Science Museum of Virginia’s mission and values, including “inclusive experience,” which is defined as the commitment to creating relevant and meaningful ways for all guests to interact with the Museum. The Museum is focusing on eliminating obstacles – financial and other – to ensure that the broadest cross section of the community has access to the Museum’s resources.
