In accordance to National Park Service guidance on service animals, dogs are the only animals that can be classified as service animals, and they must perform a specific task that assists a person with a disability. If the service dog meets this criteria, they are legally permitted anywhere that visitors can go. Owners are strongly encouraged to identify their working service dog in order to help prevent unwarranted complaints from other visitors.
Many of our exhibits and visitor centers are available as virtual tours, which can be viewed from anywhere.
