The Museum of Ceramics Foundation is pleased to announce that by March 2014 (if not sooner) we will welcome visitors to our new ACCESS? ALL RIGHT! addition. Then we will finally have an elevator and an accessible restroom, after thirty-three years of only partial access. The short term bad news is that until the ACCESS? ALL RIGHT! project is finished, the Museum of Ceramics is inaccessible; there is currently no wheelchair access into the museum. We apologize for this short-term inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming you and your friends and family once we finish our project. If you had hoped to visit during this time, then do send an email with the number of people in your party to Sarah W. Vodrey at MuseumOfCeramics@gmail.com to receive a special get in free coupon for later.
