Guide to Access

ADA Person in Wheelchair Logo

 

This guide provides information about access for visitors with disabilities who visit our museum campus.  We are striving to provide information in alternate formats where possible.  Please contact us with your comments or suggestions for improving our accessibility.

 

The historic nature of some of our buildings and grounds present some impediments to accessibility.  We describe the limitations below.  With the exception of the front parking lot, all outdoor surfaces are grassy and naturally uneven lawns.

Spies Heritage Hall   
Our main exhibit hall is fully accessible from the parking lot. Surfaces are smooth and firm and ramps are provided for changes in levels. The restroom is also accessible.   

Victorian Sheriff’s Residence and 1912 Jail Building
Access to these buildings is difficult for visitors with mobility impairments. There are stairs into the building and well as interior stairs. Doorways are narrow as are the interior hallways. Access to the building is across a naturally uneven grass lawn. 

19th Century Log Cabin
Access to this building is difficult for visitors with mobility impairments. There is a 7” high step into the building and the doorway is 30” wide. Access to this building is across a naturally uneven grass lawn. 

Gardens
Access to all the gardens on the grounds is across grassy and naturally uneven lawns. Access may be difficult for unaccompanied visitors with mobility impairments. Assistance may be helpful.

Service animals, as defined by the ADA, are permitted everywhere in all buildings and on all the grounds.

If you have any questions, please call the museum office at 231-627-9597.
