Calming Corner

Located on the lower level near the Star-Spangled Center, the Calming Corner is the perfect place for nursing mothers, children with special needs and other visitors who could use a soothing space away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Museum.

The Calming Corner is a private room equipped with a glider and child-sized rocker. The space is designed to meet the needs of nursing mothers as well as children with developmental and physical challenges—especially those on the autism spectrum—who may need a respite during their visit.

There are a multitude of quiet activities to soothe and engage children, including books, sensory games, toys and a calming six-foot bubble tube.
