The Museum of Art and History (MOAH) is compliant with American Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. 

MOAH is committed to making its facility, collections, exhibitions, programs, and services accessible to all visitors. Physical access to MOAH is compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

 

Wheelchair Accessibility

All galleries and facilities are wheelchair accessible. Visitors with wheelchairs can access MOAH through its front-facing doors and utilize the elevator to access the 2nd and rooftop floors. All restrooms on each floor are wheelchair accessible.

 

Service Animals 

MOAH is committed to providing its programs to a broad and diverse audience that includes those assisted by trained service animals. MOAH is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which defines service animals as a dog that is trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.

According to the ADA, the dog must be trained to take a specific action when needed to assist the person with a disability. For example, a person with diabetes may have a dog that is trained to alert him when his blood sugar reaches high or low levels. 

 

ⓘ Certified service animals are welcomed and allowed in MOAH’s public areas. However, the following questions may be asked of each guest with a service dog:

 

- Is the service dog required because of a disability?

- What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
