Museum Access

The Harvard Art Museums are accessible for visitors using wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Accessible entrances are located on Quincy Street, Broadway, and Prescott Street. A limited number of wheelchairs are available for loan in the lobby free of charge. Wheelchair accessible seating and assistive-listening devices are available in our lecture halls. Large text (18 point font) Visitor Guides are available in print and via iPads on loan from our Admissions desk for visitors who are visually impaired. We also offer hand held magnifiers.

Visitors arriving via paratransit van or similar are recommended to use the entrance on Broadway, which allows a right-side exit from the vehicle. Accessible parking is available (pre-purchase required) in the Broadway Garage, located at 5 Felton Street. (Please note that the garage has a 6 ft. 8 in. height limit.) Parking permits can be purchased online and must be printed and presented to the parking attendant upon arrival. When asked to select the department from a drop-down menu, select Museum Visitor—Art Museums. The department Code is 9071.

Sign language interpretation may be available upon request; please contact Visitor Services to request sign language interpretation, at least two weeks prior to the program.
