Museum Access

The Harvard Art Museums are accessible for visitors using wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Accessible entrances are located on Quincy Street, Prescott and Broadway. Visitors arriving via paratransit van or similar are recommended to use the entrance on Broadway, which allows a right-side exit from the vehicle.

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 with low vision. We also offer handheld magnifiers. We welcome service animals. For privacy, a single-use bathroom is on Level B1.

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 at least two weeks prior to the program.
