The Magnes is committed to providing services and programs that are accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of our community.


The Magnes Collection’s front lobby, galleries, and auditorium are all accessible by wheelchair. Staff will assist if required.

Service Animals

Service animals are always allowed on campus grounds and in campus buildings.

A service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for persons with disabilities. Dogs that solely provide companionship, comfort, and emotional support are not considered service animals under the ADA.

More information on University policy regarding service animals.

Large Print Resources

Booklets of large print exhibition text are available for exhibitions. Booklets can be found at the entrance to the exhibition gallery or ask at the front desk for assistance.
