Parking and Wheelchair Entrance
The Museum's Trescher entrance, 3260 South Street, and the Kress entrance (east side) are wheelchair accessible.
Handicapped parking is available in Lot 7, the parking garage adjacent to the Museum at the corner of South Street and Convention Avenue, with its entrance off Convention Avenue.
A limited number of wheelchairs are available for use while visiting the Museum. Visitors can ask for wheelchairs at the Trescher or Kress entrances.
Wheelchair Accessibility in the Galleries
Public elevators are available to take visitors to most galleries. The Lower Egyptian gallery, Islamic gallery and the Amarna galleries are only accessible by stairs. If you need elevator access to these galleries, ask for assistance at the Daniel G. Kamin entrance desk; a Museum staff person can escort you there via a freight elevator.
There is no elevator access to the Harrison Auditorium, open during some events and special programs. Visitors who can not use stairs may enter from the outside, 33rd Street entrance (it is advisable to call in advance).
The Kress entrance restrooms are equipped with wheelchair accessible stalls.
The men's restroom outside the Harrison Auditorium and the women's restroom in the Kress Entrance are equipped with baby changers. Men's and women's bathrooms in the Kress Entrance feature sink sizes to accommodate children and adults.
