Preparing for Your Visit

Visitors with autism and other conditions may be hyper sensitive to sensory input, and visiting an art museum can seem like a daunting task in itself, which is why we’ve created the CMA social story – a practical tool for caregivers, teachers, and children to read before visiting to familiarize themselves with what a trip to the museum may entail. Click here to download the CMA social story.

Public Tours

The CMA offers public tours free with membership or admission. See the schedule and learn more here.
