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) interior 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.

A temporary ramp on the exterior of the mansion is now in use (to replace the exterior lift) during the major construction project at the mansion. Electric wheelchairs will have access to the first floor during this time. For more information please call 845-229-7770.

Accessible parking is available in the main parking lot.

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.


The Vanderbilt Mansion Brochure is available in Braille. Please inquire at the Visitor Center upon arrival.
