ACCESSIBILITY

The Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum is committed to being as accessible as we can to visitors. As a historic building, certain areas of the museum are not fully physically accessible, but we are committed to employing alternative pathways to broaden access. The Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum recognizes that there is always room for improvement in our accessibility offerings. We welcome questions, comments, and suggestions on improving the museum's accessibility, and we affirm that access benefits all.

 

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions please contact us at
(913) 367-4217 or tours@ameliaearhartmuseum.org

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Are service dogs allowed?

Yes. Service dogs are welcomed in the museum, but pets are not allowed.

 

Are there places to sit in the museum?

Yes. There are two benches on the ground level that visitors are welcome to sit on. One in the front hallway and one in the Butler's Pantry.

 

How do you get into the museum?

The main entrance is on the north side of the museum. There are 4 steps into this entrance. Alternatively, we have a ramp at our east entrance. If you would like to use this entrance, we ask that you call ahead (913)367-4217 so that we can open that door for you. 

 

Is the museum itself wheelchair-accessible?

Unfortunately, not entirely. There is a ramp at the front entrance that visitors may use if needed, but there are two rooms on the ground floor that are down two stairs (our gift shop and the formal dining room). The second floor is only accessible by a set of 20 stairs.

 

What if I cannot make it up to the second floor?

The AEBM offers a guided video tour of the second floor in our Butler's Pantry on the ground floor. There is a bench to sit on to view this video.

 

What if I cannot make it to the museum?

If you cannot make it to the museum, we offer virtual tours! There are two options: prerecorded or customized.
