Accessibility at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation

Unfortunately, not only are we a bit difficult to find, but our accessibility for people with physical limitations can also be challenging. 

Our Visitor Entrance on the banks of the Charles River requires negotiating a short flight of stairs once inside the front door. Navigating a ramp and an additional staircase is required to access our Mezzanine, which features our Watch Gallery. 

Our accessibility will be greatly improved by late July 2018 with the installation of a wheelchair lift at our Visitor Entrance. - This vast improvement in our accessibility is made possible by a Community Preservation Act grant from the taxpayers of the City of Waltham. 

There is a Service Entrance to the Museum which makes direct wheelchair access to our Main Gallery possible without negotiating any stairs. Please CLICK HERE for a map to our Service Entrance

Please note: We have NO public parking, even at the Service Entrance, even for visitors with handicap plates or permits. Please CLICK HERE for our parking recommendations

Our restrooms ARE accessible.
