This event is offered in cooperation with Calvert County Parks & Recreation Therapeutic Recreation Services.

“This is the eighth year that CMM has offered a Special Needs Night, opening the museum to this audience for free. Over the years families have expressed their appreciation for this safe time. It’s a great opportunity to see how your child responds to the museum and we hope it will be the first of many repeat visits,” said Sherrod Sturrock, Director.
