Accessibility

A group of visitors approach the High Museum entrance on a sunny spring day.

The High Museum of Art welcomes patrons with disabilities.


For visitors with mobility impairments

Elevator access to the main Museum entrance is available from the Arts Center MARTA station and from the parking deck.

Visitors may enter through the double doors (on either side of the revolving doors at the main entrance). Security guards are located near the entrance for visitors seeking assistance.

Designated parking spaces for vehicles with a disability permit are available in the parking deck. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We can also accommodate vans and buses.

The Museum’s galleries, cafe, and store are wheelchair accessible. All floors are accessible by elevator. Manual wheelchairs are available for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring a valid I.D. to the front security desk to check out a wheelchair. Power wheelchairs and motorized scooters are allowed in the building.

All of our restrooms include an accessible stall as well as baby-changing facilities. Single-stall family restrooms are available in most of our restroom locations. See our maps (including a text-only version) for restroom locations.
