Our goal is to make visits to the Merchant’s House Museum as enjoyable and accessible as possible. If you have any questions or need help, please do not hesitate to ask.
For Visitors with Limited Mobility
The Museum tour visits four floors, including a total of 72 steps inside the House, as well as a flight of 7 steps to enter the building. The museum does not have an elevator. Modern chairs are available for visitors to use in most rooms.
For Visitors Who are Blind or Visually Impaired
Docents are available to describe the Museum and answer questions. A large-print self-guided tour is available. Sighted guides are admitted free of charge when in service. Service dogs are, of course, welcome. Visit New York Beyond Sight for an audio tour of the Merchant’s House with Executive Director Margaret Halsey Gardiner.
For Visitors Who Do Not Hear, or Do Not Hear Well
The Museum’s written self-guided tour is available at all times. Docents will be glad to answer questions in writing. Sign Language interpreters are admitted free of charge when in service.
