The Vanderbilt Mansion Visitor Center is accessible by wheelchair. Disability access is limited at the Vanderbilt Mansion itself, as most electric wheelchairs and many manual wheelchairs do not fit in the small historic (1935) elevator. Most visitors with disabilities are required to stand to move between floors on the elevator. Please call ahead to discuss your particular needs at 845-229-7770.
American Sign Language Interpretation is available upon request. Please contact Scott Rector at 845-229-9115 Ext. 2025 at least 14 days prior to your visit.
