Special Needs

The Museum’s exhibitions are accessible by wheelchair, and all public floors of the Museum can be reached by elevator.  Some locations within the Museum are identified in Braille.  The Museum has two buildings, the main museum and the Visible Vault.  Both are wheelchair-accessible.  The path between the buildings crosses North 26th Street.  There is a self-operated wheelchair lift in the vestibule of the Visible Vault.  Please notify us regarding any special needs or concerns.  Interpreters for the hearing-impaired may be arranged with three weeks’ notice.  For more information about accessibility contact our Visitor Services Manager at 406-256-6804, x222 or the front desk at 406-256-6804.
