The entrance doors open automatically when activated by pressing the button adjacent to the door. Manual wheelchairs are available free of charge at the Reception Desk for use within the Museum on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Museum does not have any automobile parking facilities. Please refer to the City of Philadelphia's website for information on accessible parking.
The Museum is a Certified Autism Center (CAC), designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).
The Museum offers a Sensory Guide, and noise reducing headphones, available at the Reception Desk and the Battle of Brandywine Theater. The Museum also offers a quiet room giving guests the opportunity to play the Museum’s signature films in a small, private setting.
Films located within the Galleries are close captioned and there are audio transcripts of our core Gallery and Cost of Revolution audio tours. These can be requested at the Reception Desk.
American Sign Language interpreters are available for special programs and guided tours. Please request the interpreter two weeks in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Touch Guide of the galleries are available at the Reception Desk along with an audio tour.

Contact group sales at 267-579-3623 or email email@example.com to book a Touch Tour. Please book two weeks in advance.
Service animals are welcome in the Museum. As defined by the ADA, a service animal is any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not considered service animals. Emotional support animals, comfort animals, or therapy dogs are not allowed into the Museum as they are not service animals under Title II and Title III of the ADA.
Personal Care Attendants of guests with disabilities are admitted to the Museum free of charge. This applies to all guests who purchase general admission tickets, and guests who attend special programs and performances. Guests who wish to purchase advance tickets should contact 267-579-3596 to request complimentary tickets for an accompanying Personal Care Attendant.
There are accessible restrooms on each floor of the Museum. Family/personal restrooms equipped with changing tables are located on the first and second floors.
