Lexi Haas has a neurological disorder that can cause cerebral palsy. She uses a wheel chair. Lexi was denied entrance into the Ships and Sea Museum in Savannah, Georgia because her wheelchair might make the carpets dirty. The Museum has a policy that wheelchairs from the outside are not allowed on the carpet but shoes are allowed. The museum’s website states the museum will “make a docent available to a guest with a disability to provide an introduction to the collection, house and garden; set up a video presentation on the collection in the pavilion or classroom; introduce display items in the classroom, and make Museum publications or additional videos available to the guest (if you call ahead and make arrangements).” In other words, you can’t go through the Museum, we will make material available to you through a video.
