Accessibility at Seashore
Accessibility at Seashore is of great importance to us. The Visitors Center is wheelchair accessible, including restroom facilities and the Museum Store. We have ample handicap parking spaces adjacent to the main entrance. The parking area, entrance walkway and visitor’s platform are all hard surfaces of asphalt, concrete and brick respectively.
Debuting for the 2020 operating season is the Museum’s new Mobilift! This addition will allow handicap access to many of the cars in our regular operating fleet. Our goal with Mobilift is to provide an enhanced experience for our guests with mobility challenges! Our goal will be to always have at least one car accessible via Mobilift on every day of operations.
Also new for the 2020 season is the plaza that leads from the parking area ot the front enterance of the Visitors Center. Many years of New England weather have taken a toll on this walkway area. In order to maintain a safe path of travel for all of our guests, this entire surface has ben replaced.
Our walkways to the exhibit barns are packed gravel but are not paved. At this time there is no elevator to the observation gallery in the Donald G. Curry Restoration Shop.
