Wheelchair Accessibility
WheatonArts is accessible to visitors who use wheelchairs. All public spaces within WheatonArts’ fourteen public buildings are on the first floor, and on unobstructed paths, typically kept clear from snow and ice. All buildings have ramps, except for the School House (currently in repair). Assistance with the front door in a number of buildings may be needed. All buildings are manned with staff who can accommodate a visitor’s needs.

Visitors may borrow manual wheelchairs from the Gatehouse and the Museum of American Glass on a first-come, first-served basis.

Public Transportation
WheatonArts is in a semi-rural area, with no direct link to public transportation. Outside transportation services should be instructed to drop off and pick up passengers at 1501 Glasstown Road, Millville, NJ 08332 at the Main Gate. GPS users should use 1100 Village Drive, Millville, NJ 08332.

Pricing
Companions and assistants of visitors with disabilities will not be charged admission.

Assisted Listening
WheatonArts owns 5 assisted listening receivers with 1 microphone transmitter. These devices are housed in the Museum of American Glass, but can be moved to accommodate performances or other needs on campus. Additionally, in our Glass Studio, an amplified sound system is used 3 times daily for narrated demonstrations of glass making activity on the studio floor.

Accessible Parking
Accessible parking spaces are available on a first-come, first served basis in our main parking as well as the rear of our Event Center, for vehicles with official disabled state stickers, placards, or license plates. Some assistance may be required to reach the Main Gate from the parking lot because there is a small lip in the concrete ramp due to settling of the original parking lot.

Restrooms
Wheelchair accessible restrooms are located at the Main Gate, the Museum of American Glass, and the new Education and Event Center.
