There are curb cuts in front of the Museum’s main pedestrian entrance. The entrance is equipped with automated (push-button entry) doors in addition to revolving doors. Once inside, elevators and stairs offer access to the Entry Hall ticket counters.
Inside the Museum
Elevators and ramps are located throughout the Museum providing access to all floors. There are accessible toilet stalls in all of our restrooms. The Giant Dome Theater has designated seating for guests using wheelchairs and their companions with an elevator providing access to this seating.
Exhibits and Experiences
Certain exhibits have limited accessibility, due to their historic nature. Others may have variations in sensory levels (light, sound or motion) for which guests may want to prepare.
Exhibit accessibility notes
Wheelchairs, including manual or electric single seat chairs and electric mobility seated scooters, and other manually operated mobility devices including walkers, crutches, canes, braces and other similar devices, are permitted in all public areas of the Museum. See accessibility notes regarding mobility in individual exhibits.
No other type of manually operated or power-driven mobility devices are permitted in the Museum, including but not limited to Segways, self-balancing two-wheeled electric scooters or "hoverboards," wagons, tricycles and carts. These devices are not permitted due to the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the Museum, the size, type, weight, dimensions and speed of these devices, and the substantial risk of harm to Museum exhibits, other guests and the user. If your mobility device is not permitted, the Museum has manually operated wheelchairs available for use free of charge.
