The Taft Museum of Art is accessible to all, including visitors with special mobility requirements. The entire Museum, including the historic house, is accessible to visitors who use standard-sized wheelchairs or walkers. Two small wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be requested at the Admissions desk.


Visitors who use large wheelchairs, please note: The special exhibition gallery, the Shop, Luther Hall, and the Lindner Family Café, located in the renovated area of the Museum, are all fully accessible to larger wheelchairs. To access these areas easily, please enter the parking garage and use the elevator, which can be accessed on all garage levels.

Prior to visiting the Taft, visitors using larger wheelchairs should review the measurements of the wheelchair lift that provides access to the permanent collection located in the historic house.  The landmark status of this building imposes certain architectural constraints, and some large or motorized wheelchairs may not fit in this lift. The entrance width of the historic house lift is 32 inches and the car is 64 inches high. The platform is 29 inches wide and the depth is 48 inches. Safety concerns may require that visitors place larger chairs in the most upright sitting position when using this lift.
