CuriOdyssey aims to accommodate guests with disabilities, learning differences, and language barriers. We strive to design for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we would be happy to work with you to ensure a wonderful experience during your visit.

Accessibility During COVID-19

CuriOdyssey is still requiring masks indoors and outdoors for visitors over 2 years of age for the safety of our visitors and animals. In the event that a guest in your group is unable to wear a mask, please let a Visitor Engagement representative know at check in. They will receive a sticker to let staff know that they are unable to wear a mask. Any guests that are unable to wear masks must maintain 6 feet of distance from other visitors not in their group.

Physical Accessibility

Our front entrance is accessible via ramp, and guests with mobility devices may exit through the front as well. Accessible parking for guests with DMV-issued disability placards is available adjacent to the building, and there is a designated white zone in the museum traffic circle to allow for easier drop off prior to parking.

Visitors attending events or programs in our classroom or outdoor patio can access those spaces via the same ramp.

Our Physics in Action playground, WHOOOSH!, is accessible by many mobility devices. The playground equipment is designed to be inclusive for users of all abilities, ages, and sizes.

Restrooms

All gender restrooms, accessible by mobility devices, are located in the zoo area between the raccoon and otter exhibits.

Sensory Accessibility

Some of our exhibits contain flashing lights, intense lighting, and auditory components. Sound dampeners and sensory stimulation devices are available at the front desk. If a guest needs a sensory safe space, please talk to a Visitor Engagement representative.

A member of the guest’s party must remain with the animal at all times for the safety of all concerned. Download CuriOdyssey Policy for Service Animals.
