Accessibility

 

The Museum is committed to accessibility and inclusive experiences for all our guests.

Mobility: Our building is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. Wheelchairs and other manually operated mobility devices are available.

Museums for All: As a proud member of the Museums for All national initiative to make quality museum learning experiences available to everyone, the VMHC offers free admission for low-income families. Guests who present their SNAP or WIC Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Card at the Guest Services will receive free admission.

Sensory Concerns: The Virginia Museum of History & Culture has partnered with the Autism Society of Central Virginia to provide staff with disability-specific training.

  • To help make the experience exploring the VMHC accessible and enjoyable for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder or sensory concerns, guests can check out noise-canceling headphones and fidget toys to using during their visit. These items can be checked out for free from the Guest Services desk. Guests who would like to check out headphones or fidgets need to leave a form of ID, which will be returned once the item is returned to the Guest Services desk.
