Accessibility in the Park

New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park is committed to making all practicable efforts to make the visitor center, programs, services, employment, and meaningful work opportunities accessible and usable by all individuals.

The national park is located within a historic district that strives to preserve and protect the history of the area and several buildings were built before current accessibility standards were set. Please note the park has cobblestone streets, historic homes, and a working waterfront. The national park's goal is to provide the highest level of accessibility to our visitors as possible.

If your questions concerning accessibility are unanswered after reading the below information, please contact us at 508-996-4095.
