We're committed to making the Museum's galleries and programs accessible to all visitors.
- Museum entrances are wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available at the coat check on the first floor. There are wheelchair-accessible rest rooms on the first and third floors.
- The third-floor Kevorkian Gallery has floors inclined less than eight percent to improve wheelchair access to the gallery, Beaux-Arts Court, and East Wing.
- All of our public spaces are wheelchair accessible, with the exception of areas leading to some period rooms in the Decorative Arts collection on the fourth floor. Inaccessible areas are shown on our Museum Floor Plan.
- Companions or aides of people with disabilities are admitted for free.
American Sign Language interpretation is available for adult tour groups and Guided Gallery Visits for school groups, with advance notice.
Assistive listening devices are available in the Cantor Auditorium and for many programs, with advance notice.
- Whenever there's an audio guide, you'll also find transcripts at our Visitor Center.
- Our Education Touch Collection enables tactile exploration of sculptural objects. To schedule a visit to this collection, contact School Programs.
- Listen to descriptions of select objects from our collection at Art Beyond Sight, an online audio guide for people with visual impairments.
- With advance notice, we offer guided gallery visits to children and adults with developmental disabilities.
- We also offer specially tailored visits for school groups with special needs.
