Jim’s Accessibility Comments:

The entire Museum including the main entrance, access to both floors via nice commercial elevators and all exhibits are wheelchair accessible. Great work!

There are accessible restrooms on each floor of the Museum. Family/personal restrooms are located on the first and second floors.

The Museum does not have any automobile parking facilities. You’ll need to use city parking facilities. The closest is 125 S. 2nd Street. Another is on 4th between Market and Chestnut.

Great new museum and very wheelchair friendly!
