service animal access

The Nido & Mariana Qubein Children’s Museum is committed to providing excellent service to all children and families, including individuals with disabilities and individuals with disabilities who are accompanied by a service animal, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Service animals play an important role in ensuring full participation in everyday life for people with disabilities and the Museum welcomes visitors with service animals. According to the ADA, "service animal" means any dog individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.

“Emotional support animals”, “comfort animals”, “companion animals”, and “therapy animals” that are not individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability are not considered service animals under the ADA. The Museum follows ADA requirements for service animals and does not allow animals other than service animals to accompany visitors.

Service Animals must be on a leash, harness, or tether, unless that interferes with the animal’s ability to safely and effectively work or the individual is unable to use these devices because of a disability. In that case, the individual must maintain control through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
