Mobility Impairments

There are two main entrances into the building. An entrance access ramp for our entrance that faces Demonbreun St. is located on the Fifth Ave. corner of the building.  The Fifth Ave. entrance ramp is located to the side of the doors. Inside, the Museum is equipped with elevator service at all levels. Ramps are in place for wheelchair accessibility.


Historic RCA Studio B tours are also wheelchair accessible. However, due to weight limitation for the wheelchair lift on the bus, motorized wheelchairs or scooters are not allowed. We do have wheelchairs that can be used in its place. A ramp is located for entry at the Studio along with accessible restrooms for emergencies.
