Burpee Museum of Natural History is committed to making its buildings, exhibits, and programs accessible to all visitors with special needs. We offer ramps, accessible restrooms, an elevator, and ample room around each exhibit. We adhere to the Smithsonian Institute’s guidelines for accessibility. Our classes accommodate children (and their parents) with special needs.

We are here to help.

Burpee Museum has four floors of handicap-accessible Natural History exhibits, including elevators. Visitors using wheelchairs or strollers may be dropped off at the Main Entrance, with free handicapped parking near Wheelchair Rentals. Wheelchairs are available free of charge. Upon arrival, ask our Visitor Services staff for assistance. Call in advance to reserve and check availability.
