Two manual wheelchairs and one walker with wheels are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Please return them after your visit.
The Cape Ann Museum also welcomes your personal mobility device. An elevator and lifts are available for access between floors.
The Museum is completely accessible for all mobility devices with the exception of our historical homes, the Captain Elias Davis House and our off-site property, the White-Ellery House. Due to the historical nature of the houses, the door frames are not wide enough to accommodate most mobility devices.
Assisted Listening Devices
