Museum of disABILITY History: Virtual Museum

The Museum of disABILITY History is on a mission to increase "the understanding, acceptance and independence of people with disabilities," and hopes to serve as "a platform for dialogue and discovery." Though the physical location in Buffalo, New York unfortunately closed in December 2020, readers from around the world can explore its exhibits online. Six topics are covered: media, medicine, society, New York, education, and advocacy. Users can simply click on the corresponding banner or link to explore each topic's many exhibits. For example, in the Media Wing, visitors will find a timeline of key publications and performances. In the Education Wing, readers can browse images of relevant people and places. Complementing the virtual museum is the Educational Resources section. Here, instructors will find a wealth of classroom tools that reflect and expand on the museum's exhibits. Lesson plans are created for a variety of ages, from pre-K through high school. The Museum of disABILITY History is connected to People Inc., a non-profit human services agency based in Western New York. In addition to People Inc., the museum received support from the B. Thomas Golisano Foundation.
