Exhibit Capacity and Guidelines

In order to ensure a meaningful learning experience for all visitors, exhibit capacity is monitored. If a gallery is full, The Wright Museum staff may advise a group to wait before entering.


Children's Discovery Room

Designed to capture and stimulate the imagination of Pre-K through 3rd grade children, the Children’s Discovery Room uses a multimedia approach to teach the lessons of the And Still We Rise exhibit in an age-appropriate manner. Live actors use the environment’s sound and video capabilities to weave a story of tribulation and hope that children can understand. The Children’s Discovery Room is a wonderful tool for teachers and group leaders to introduce their children to a complex and delicate part of American history.


Limited space for your school group to bring bagged lunches may be available on a pre-registered basis. The cost of reserving space is $1 per person per half hour.

For catered lunch options: please call (313) 494-5808 for catered lunch options and pricing for your group.
