Explore the Ability in Disability, in Philly!

The Please Touch Museum has a hands-on exhibit that goes beyond your typical disability awareness experience.  Yes, you can ride in a manual wheelchair, and try your hand navigating a "multisensory" city walk.  But you can also learn some sign language, create art using touch and sound, and try a hand-pedaled bike.  In other words, you're not just looking at the negative aspects of a disability, but also exploring different ways of doing things.

And best of all, they include a universal design feature: "Experience design challenges, discover multiple ways to accomplish tasks and learn how things can be designed to work for the largest number of people"  January 22 - Apriil 24.
