Museum Denies Handicapped Girl Access & They Are Suffering The Consequences, Big Time.

· Written by

All Lexi Haas wanted to do was visit a museum, but unfortunately.. she was denied. She has Kernicterus, a neurological disorder than can cause cerebral palsy, and because of her wheelchair she was turned away.

As a response to the incident, the museum’s director issued a statement:

“Out of respect to the Haas family, we have concentrated our effort on contacting them first and foremost. We have offered our heartfelt condolences to Lexi and her family over this shocking and regrettable departure from our continuing efforts to provide a welcoming and enjoyable experience to all of our visitors…without exception. It is especially hurtful to us that an eleven-year-old girl experienced this insensitive rebuff.

We are very grateful to them for their acceptance of our apology, but please be sure that we shall continue to keep this matter foremost in our minds and actions.”
