Museum at Eldridge Street is committed to ensuring our visitors can readily access the information and services we provide, both on-site and on our website.


Building Access

All four levels of the Museum at Eldridge Street are fully accessible by ramp and elevator.


The Museum offers complimentary admission for any personal care attendant accompanying a visitor. 

When booking your visit, communicate all special needs by emailing or calling 212.219.0302. Our staff will work with you to put together an itinerary that best meets your needs and visitation goals.

Verbal descriptions or touch tours, and social stories are available upon request. We also offer special tours for people living with dementia and their caregivers.


The closest MTA Subway Train with access to an elevator is the 6, N, Q, R, J or Z trains to Canal Street. It is a 10-minute walk from the station to the Museum. Our staff can further advise on where to go on the Lower East Side which can fit your other needs. 


Our self-guided tours are available in English, Chinese, and Spanish. Inquire at the admissions desk.



The Museum is in the process of achieving compliance with the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, Level AA” (“WCAG-2.0 AA”), a set of guidelines adopted by a private group designed to maximize accessibility of web content.

Please note that our website may link to, or interface with, third-party websites that we do not control. These third-party vendors may not have undertaken the same efforts to comply with WCAG-2.0 AA standards.

Please understand that our efforts to improve online accessibility are ongoing. We encourage you to report any accessibility issues you may encounter by contacting us at or at 212.219.0302, so we can assist you.


We also encourage you to contact us to determine if any alternative communication methods or accessibility formats are available.

We thank you for your patience and partnership as we continue our efforts to enhance the accessibility of our website and our Museum.
