Accessibility

The Museum is committed to making its exhibitions, collection, building, and services accessible to all visitors. All public areas of the Museum are wheelchair accessible. A limited number of wheelchairs are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Motorized wheelchairs are permitted.

The Lichtenstein Theater and Lobby are both equipped with an induction loop assistive listening system. Headsets and neck loops are also available. 

The property is equipped with ample parking for daily visitors and special event participants. Patrons requiring wheelchair special assistance from the parking lot to the entrance may call 631-283-2118 x109 to make arrangements. Please note that the main entrance to the building is located off the center pathway, so it is recommended that, when possible, patrons park towards the middle of the parking lot. This is where parking for people with disabilities is located as well. In inclement weather, guests requiring assistance may be dropped off at the eastern end of the building, and may call on arrival to have a wheelchair ready.

CART and Qualified Interpretation is available upon request for all programs. If at all possible, requests should be made a minimum of 10 business days in advance by calling Jennifer Duque at 631-283-2118 x142, or emailing duquej@parrishart.org.

Service animals are, by law, welcome. A service animal is a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. Service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered.
