There is a drop-off area and one accessible parking space in front of the museum. A 50-foot ramp at about a 30-degree incline leads to the museum entrance.
Additional parking for visitors with disabilities is available at College Hall (at 17 Elm Street, 320 feet from the museum) and in the Unity Lot or the Alumnae House Lot off of Bedford Terrace (about 500 feet from the museum). If you have an accessible parking placard, you may park in any accessible space or white-lined space on campus.
If you qualify to park in accessible spaces but do not have a placard, you can get a temporary pass by visiting Smith Disability Services or calling 413-585-2071.
