The Huntington is committed to accessibility for all visitors.


The Huntington is committed to making its collections, buildings, programs, and services accessible for all visitors.

Wheelchairs and Mobility Devices

All buildings and most gardens at The Huntington are accessible to visitors who require physical accommodation. Wheelchairs are available for loan on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors who require a physical accommodation are also welcome to bring their own motorized scooters, wheelchairs, or Segways.

A color-coded map of the grounds is available online and in the Visitor’s Guide when you arrive, showing steep areas.

Service Animals

The Huntington welcomes all visitors, including those assisted by a service animal. Visitors with service animals are permitted in all publicly accessible areas. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The Huntington recognizes only dogs and miniature horses as Service Animals. These animals are specifically trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Guests who use service animals must retain control of their animal at all times, and are required to keep them on a leash or harness while visiting. Emotional support animals, dogs, and other pets are not recognized as service animals under the ADA and are not permitted at The Huntington.

Nursing Mother’s Room

While mothers and caregivers are welcome to nurse, bottle-feed, or pump wherever they feel comfortable at The Huntington, the Nursing Mother’s Room provides a private, accommodating place. The room is located in the June and Merle Banta Education Center, which is part of the Steven S. Koblik Education and Visitor Center. Available on a first-come, first-served basis, the room includes a cushioned armchair, a small table, a locking door, and an electrical outlet, as well as a diaper-changing table and a sink with running water. For security purposes, the room has a keypad entry and requires a code. Visitors may request the code from Visitor Services or Security staff.

Social Narrative for Visitors on the Autism Spectrum

Families, teachers, and other service providers who support youth and adults on the autism spectrum can prepare for a visit to The Huntington with a social narrative. This guide includes images and descriptions of what to expect on a visit to The Huntington, and is ideal for visitors on the autism spectrum and those who benefit from having clear expectations.
