The disability awareness training at the Chicago History Museum was excellent! The staff was very welcoming and friendly! I really appreciated that the audience was so engaged in the material and active in participating in the role plays. Overall, the training was a huge success!

It was an interesting museum and getting on the older version of the l train was so much fun. I especially liked writing a birthday message to Chicago. I liked the Al Capone exhibit as well. Black History interested me so much.

I also attended this museum event a couple of days ago and had a fun time. The presenters knocked it out of the park. Everybody with whom I interacted that day was wonderful. In addition, I love history so this was a good day for me to come.

I really enjoyed the training at the Chicago History Museum! The training was a huge success! I felt we did the presentation not only to inform people about disabilties, but we did it through a demonstration and role plays with humor and enthusiasm. I appreciated that the people were very welcoming and were very engaged in the training. The audience was very involved in the training which made the training a success. I was glad I got to meet with people after the training! Also, the Dunkin Donuts were delicious!

There are not many available parking spots. It would also make the museum more convenient for people with disabilities if there are more accessible parking spots. But overall, the staff was very welcoming and friendly!
