Calm Morning: Onward

Calm Morning: Onward

Designated hours to experience the museum in a less-sensory-stimulating setting.

We invite visitors to our Calm Mornings program on Saturday, June 29, from 9am to 1pm, inspired by the film  Onward (2020). ASL interpretation will be provided. 

9–10am | Early Gallery Access
Explore the Inventing Worlds and Characters: Animation and  Effects galleries in our Stories of Cinema  exhibition on Level 3, where sound and lighting adjustments will be made for a more sensory-friendly viewing experience. 

10–11am | Family Workshop 
Visit the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level for a family workshop inspired by Onward (2020).  This workshop is inspired by the magical quest that Ian and Barley embark on! Imagine your own magical world and create a fantastical map of the places the characters in your fantasy movie would go during their journey.  

In addition to the Calm Mornings program, we encourage visitors to attend our accessible, open-caption screening of Onward (2020) at 11am in the Ted Mann Theater. The screening is part of our weekly Family Matinees film series. A separate admission ticket is required. 

The Shirley Temple Education Studio will remain open during the screening as a space for relaxation and continued art-making until 1pm. 

If you have any questions or need assistance planning your visit, please email  

Academy Museum accessibility initiatives are made possible in part by the Ruderman Family Foundation. Calm Mornings is also supported in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
