We are pleased to announce that recent renovation work at Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site has provided improvements resulting in increased accessibility for wheelchair-bound and mobility challenged individuals. Floors have been leveled and wheelchair lifts have been installed to assist with accessibility. A handrail has been installed along the west entrance staircase, and to the right of that is a wheelchair lift to bring individuals from street level to entrance level. On the wall right next to the wheelchair lift is a bell to summon assistance from the visitor desk to assist and operate the lift. To access the period rooms and auditorium (for special events), visitors may take the elevator. From the third floor there is a wheelchair lift to take individuals to the auditorium. Please inquire at the visitor desk for assistance to operate the auditorium lift. For further questions regarding accessibility, please call 212-260-1616 and speak to a staff member.
