  • If at all possible, it is recommended that persons with mobility-related disabilities be transported in a smaller vehicle that can access the parking lot, and enter from the rear. Remember that a full-sized bus cannot safely make the turn into the lot, so all buses will need to drop off on the street.
  • Be advised that the museum is set back from both Delaware Avenue and Franklin Street, so a walk of several feet will be necessary if being dropped off at the street by a bus.
  • The distance from Delaware Avenue is approximately 100 feet, partially over loose gravel.
  • The distance from Franklin Street is approximately 180 feet over paved surfaces.
  • No steps are necessary to tour the museum.
