The Military Aviation Museum is committed to fostering an environment of inclusion and participation for all visitors in all of its galleries, exhibits and programs. Staff and Volunteers will always endeavor to accommodate specific requests during your visit, but if you are planning your trip in advance we encourage you to inquire about accommodation.
Our commitment to removing barriers to participation for individuals with disabilities means that if you have feedback, or suggestions on how we can improve the experience, please contact us.
- Only service animals are allowed around the Museum’s campus and exhibits. Pets are not permitted on the Museum grounds.
- Small bags and backpacks are allowed in the Museum, though staff reserve the right to conduct a search of bags brought on to the property if necessary.
- Some of the Historic Structures on the property do not meet modern accessibility requirements. The Goxhill Watch Office is not equipped with an elevator, however, at the request of a visitor a member of the Museum team can provide an equivalent experience through a photographic tour of the inaccessible space.
- Because our collection still flies, our display Hangars double up as working spaces. Moving around in the hangars can pose a challenge due to the close proximity of aircraft to one another. If you are struggling to find a path between the aircraft, please let a staff member or volunteer know so they can assist you!
- With advanced notice, Museum guides experienced at working with translators can be provided. To make arrangements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Motorized wheelchairs are not available for rent on the property, however manual wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first served basis.
- Handicapped parking spots are available adjacent to the Museum entrance, and are connected by an at-grade sidewalk.
- All public restrooms have wheelchair-accessible stalls.
- The second floor of the main museum building is accessible via elevator, though the second floor of the historic Goxhill Watch Office is not.
- Bench seating is available throughout the Museum, please do not hesitate to notify the staff if you are in search of a comfortable place to rest!
Complimentary descriptive tours featuring tactile experiences are available for visually impaired or blind visitors with two-weeks of advanced notice. The provision of this guide is subject to docent or staff availability.
- With at least two-weeks of advanced notice the Museum can endeavor to schedule an ASL interpreter to accompany you on your Museum visit.
- If you are being accompanied by an interpreter, there will be no admission charge for that interpreter when they identify themselves to the admissions staff.
- Guides are happy to wear microphone devices connected to hearing aids (provided by the visitor), and similar devices while providing tours.
- Due to the nature of our live programs, we advise discretion due to sustained loud noises, backfires, weapons demonstrations and other abrupt, irregular sounds.
- If you are visiting while a demonstration is ongoing, please do not hesitate to request a quiet area where the demonstrations can still be observed.
- Changing stations are available in the ground floor restrooms (mens and womens) in the main Museum building.
- Mothers are permitted to breastfeed at their discretion anywhere on the Museum campus.
- A private space is available by request, and can be accessed with an employee escort. Should you need to utilize the space please let a member of the staff know during your visit.
- Available to visitors of all ages with special needs, and to their families, Sensory Friendly Mornings are scheduled periodically throughout the year to provide a great experience for those who would prefer to visit when there are no aircraft operating, and exhibit sounds and lights are reduced.
