The Huntsville Museum of Art is committed to advancing an inclusive space and community by creating and implementing accessibility initiatives. We believe art and public spaces should be accessible to all individuals of all abilities. A Handicap Call Box is located at the Davidson Entrance. Guests with mobility issues may receive immediate assistance from the Museum’s security personnel.
Additionally, the Museum offers an Accessible Art Workshop program that includes two components: One includes tours and workshops for people with vision impairment, low vision and blindness; the other component includes tours and workshops that are specific to deaf/hard of hearing. For more information about AAW and the upcoming dates visit the Accessible Art page.
The Museum has a parking lot adjacent to the building. Guests park for free during Museum hours by registering through Bird Dog Parking and entering a code from the front desk.
