Accessibility at Gadsden Arts

All galleries, restrooms, and the gift shop at the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum are wheelchair accessible. 2nd Floor galleries and the basement art studio can be accessed by the elevator in the Zoe Golloway Gallery. Additionally, Gadsden Arts has one wheelchair available to borrow from the Visitor Services desk while you visit the museum.

Service animals are welcome at the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum. 

Accessible parking is available a short distance from Gadsden Arts, on Washington Street at the intersection to Madison St. There are ramped sidewalks at the intersections of Madison Street and Washington Street, and Madison Street and Jefferson Street (US90).

All Museum labels are displayed at 16pt font or larger. We are happy to produce large print materials upon request. We apologize for this inconvenience, but due to our small staff size, we ask that you request large print materials or other additional accommodations at least a week in advance.

In an ongoing effort to improve accessibility, the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum welcomes visitors of all abilities to explore the galleries and is open to requests for programs that best suit your needs. Although we have a very small staff, we are committed to creating a welcoming and engaging environment for all, in an effort to work towards our mission of improving quality of life through art in our region. This includes an interest in partnering with groups to develop programs for specific audiences as needs and demands arise.

Ongoing Accessibility Efforts

Gadsden Arts is working towards developing described tours for visitors with vision loss and exploring the possibilities of tactile objects, enhancing experiences for visitors with hearing loss through ASL and amplified sound tours, and developing tours for people with dementia and their caregivers.
