Accessibility

The Museum is architecturally barrier-free, and there are three elevators that service the three levels of the Museum. Accessible restrooms and drinking fountains are located on each level of the Museum. The Crocker welcomes working service animals that are necessary to assist patrons with disabilities. Service animals must be under control by their handler at all times.

Wheelchairs, strollers, and gallery stools are available at no charge during your visit on a first-come, first-served basis. Please inquire about this service at the Museum’s admission desk. Changing stations are located in the men’s, women’s and family restrooms on all three floors.

For visitors who are blind or have low vision, Sensory Engagement Tours use scents, sounds, and tactile materials to engage with artworks. A selection of original artworks can also be experienced through touch. Following the tour of the galleries, visitors can try their own hand at material exploration in our studio spaces and enjoy a docent-facilitated discussion about the art they experienced.
