Wheelchairs and other mobility devices
The Museum of Miniature Houses and Other Collections, Inc. is accessible to standard wheelchairs, walkers, and canes. Wide wheelchairs can navigate some rooms. Motorized wheelchairs and scooters are unfortunately unable to navigate the museum.
A ramp is accessible from the parking lot in the rear of the building. Use the back door to enter the museum.
In each room there are chairs for resting when needed. There are also step stools in each room for those who need a vertical boost.
The museum can provide a wheelchair for those who need it.
Service animals are welcome but must always remain on a leash and under the handler’s control and supervision. Museum staff can request the removal of a Service Animal from our premises if:
- The animal is out of control and the handler’s attempts to control it are unsuccessful
- The animal is not housebroken
For more information about Service Animals and their requirements, please visit the ADA Service Animals FAQ Page.
Accomodations for those with Visual Impairments
Magnifying glasses are available throughout the exhibit rooms for visitors to get a closer look at the detail in our displays.
To help make the art of miniatures more accessible, we have created a hands-on roombox where touching is encouraged. This exhibit is located in Room #6 and is free to explore.
Visitors are welcome to utilize the museum’s Audio Tour. Covering 41 pieces of the collection, the audio tour is an enhancement to a visit. The audio is in English. For those with hearing impairment, there is a printout of the tour. There are additional transcripts available in Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese.
Accomodations for those with Hearing Impairments
The museum relies primarily on labels, and a printout of the audio tour can be supplied upon request.
