On-site Accessibility & Parking
All public areas of the museum are wheelchair accessible. Motorized wheelchairs are welcome. Drop-off areas are located on 12th Avenue (Hamilton Building) or 14th Avenue (North Building). There are a few accessible parking spaces on 13th Avenue and some on the second level of the Cultural Center Garage (enter garage from 12th Avenue and follow signs to northwest corner elevators). The main entrances to both buildings are equipped with power assist doors.
Accessible restrooms are available on every level of the Hamilton Building, and on Level 1 of the North Building. A single user/family restroom is available on level one of each building.
There are no public telephones in the building. Ask at the welcome desk for phone assistance.
Wheelchairs are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis at the welcome center in either building. While quantity is limited, it is almost always sufficient to meet demand. Therefore we don’t accept reservations. Leaving a driver’s license or ID is required.
Sign Language Interpretation
Sign language interpretation can be scheduled for any museum tour, program, or event with two weeks’ notice (shorter notice requests accommodated if possible). To make arrangements, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Large Print & Braille Materials
Large print label booklets and braille label booklets are available for selected special exhibitions. Ask at our welcome desk. Magnifying sheets are available in selected gallery areas to make wall labels easier to read.
Transcripts in large print are available for exhibition audio tours. Ask at our welcome desk. Printed transcripts are available nearby for selected educational videos and audio components in the galleries.

Social Story: My Visit to the Denver Art Museum
Social stories are visual and written guides describing various social interactions, situations, behaviors, skills, or concepts. Social stories can be helpful for families with children with autism, first-time visitors, and others who prefer to prepare for new environments and situations.
