Certified Autism Center

All HMNS locations have worked with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), a global leader in online training and certification programs, to be designated as a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC). Our staff has completed training and certification in best practices when assisting individuals with autism. By undergoing additional autism-specific training, the goal is for our team to be better equipped to provide better service and experiences to all. Click to learn more about Certified Autism Center™


For guests with physical disabilities, The George Observatory is wheelchair accessible. Specifically for stargazing, there is a ramp that leads to the observation deck. The research dome has a hydraulic floor so that guests using wheelchairs can use the eyepiece when the dome is open.
