MASS MoCA is committed to providing a welcoming environment to all by offering services to make our programs as accessible as possible. Ask about wheelchairs, gallery stools, and event listening devices available to check-out, free of charge, in the museum lobby. While the information here provides a general overview of accessibility features, we encourage you to call or email to address questions or specific needs:
413.662.2111 x8121 or email@example.com
Our main parking lot has accessible parking, and we invite all patrons to drop off visitors near the front entrance. The museum campus and gallery spaces are vast. Wheelchairs are available, free of charge, in the museum lobby.
A parking map is available here and has many options for parking, food, drinks, and shopping in town.
All galleries and facilities within MASS MoCA are wheelchair-accessible. Outdoor spaces offer wheelchair-accessible paths that are open seasonally. Manual wheelchairs are available in the lobby, free of charge, on a first come, first served basis. We also welcome your personal manual or motorized wheelchairs, walkers, or scooters. There are places to sit and rest throughout the galleries.
MASS MoCA is committed to the personal safety of all visitors. Please note that on high-volume days, OPDMD use may be restricted in crowded galleries.
Exhibitions offer large-print wall text introductions, QR codes for mobile access to our exhibition brochures, and our knowledgeable museum attendants are available in each gallery to answer any questions. Museum staff can also suggest accessible routes and notify guests of any spaces with low-level lighting.
We currently have an exhibition on view of artist Joseph Grigely, an artist whose work centers around access and disability. You can find the exhibition page here, and a list of the resources here, including audio descriptions. This is just a start for MASS MoCA as we aim to make such resources available throughout the museum.
ADA service animals are welcome at MASS MoCA.
Please be advised that certain exhibitions and works of art may include natural and organic substances such as grasses, plant pollen, and fiber, animal hair, dust, nuts or other allergens.
MASS MoCA is a safe space for nursing parents. If you’d prefer a private space, a lactation room is located in Building 10 on the 3rd floor just to the left of the elevator (accessible from our main lobby). A restroom with changing table and water fountain are adjacent to this space.
MASS MoCA is privileged to work with an array of artists and mediums. From standing room-only concerts to seated experimental dance and theater to somewhere in between, we show it all. Our venues adapt to accommodate an artist’s creative vision and changes can be made up to the final moments. This means ADA sections are show specific, rather than venue based. For any performing arts-related ADA inquiries, such as ADA-compliant event seating accommodations, please contact the Box Office at (413) 662-2111 x8121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MASS MoCA strives to provide the best possible experience for all our visitors. Please contact us with any feedback or questions.
Guests who require an aid, service, or a modification of museum policies or procedures should contact us before a scheduled visit: 413.662.2111 x8121 or email@example.com.
