Science For All

Unique Experiences at Burpee: Free of Charge!

Burpee Museum offers the "Science For All" programming to make our exhibits and programs more assessable to all learners.

Individuals with disabilities, and close friends and family, can have exclusive alone time at the museum on special dates and times.  These experiences, occurring either 1 hour before or after the museum is open to the public, are free of charge to allow everyone to experience the excitement of science!

Please notify staff in advance if you have unique needs that Burpee staff can accommodate by adjusting exhibit lighting, sound, or other elements.

Please Note: Dates and times are limited for these events. Pre-register to secure your spot!
