The Vanderbilt Mansion Visitor Center is accessible by wheelchair and electronic scooters. Because of construction, access to the Vanderbilt Mansion is temporarily limited to visitors that can stand and use stairs to enter. There is a small historic (1935) elevator to help individuals move between floors once inside the building. Because of the size of the elevator visitors are required to stand in order to ride.
Please call ahead to discuss your particular needs at 845-229-7770.
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.
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.
