America's First Museum of Modern Art



All galleries and public facilities of the museum are wheelchair accessible. A limited number of wheelchairs is available at the coat check. Elevators are available throughout the museum; a wheelchair lift is also available between Goh Annex Floor 3 and the bridge walkway to House Floor 2U. Please see a museum assistant for access to the lift. The Center for Art and Knowledge also has an elevator available for its public programs.

Please note that from July 9 through August 9, while we make critical repairs to the elevator in the Phillips House building, accessibility to the permanent collection galleries in the House will be limited for those visitors requiring use of the elevator. 

The entire Goh Annex and Sant Building, including our gift shop, café, and exhibition The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement, is fully accessible during this period of time. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience.


A limited number of FM assistive listening devices (headsets) are available for museum tours. Please check with your tour guide. Transcripts are available for audio guides. Videos on view in the galleries are captioned on screen.


Service animals are welcome.
