Accessibility & Sensory-Friendly Experiences

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum welcomes all visitors to its historic house and garden. We are working to make the museum accessible for everyone, however, at this time full tours of the house and garden require traversing stairs and uneven outdoor surfaces.

For additional information, please contact us by phone, 973.538.2404 or info@maccullochhall.org.

Physical Accessibility

Visitors with Limited Mobility

The first floor of the house and Schoolroom Gallery are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair entry into the house is via a ramp from the driveway into the Schoolroom Gallery.

The full tour of Macculloch Hall Historical Museum takes about 45 minutes and requires brief periods of movement and standing. Visitors in wheelchairs can tour the first floor of the house. Moving through the rooms may be difficult depending on the size of the wheelchair. Access to the lower level and second floor period rooms is via stairs. Visitors with limited mobility can view the lower level and second floor period rooms through large format professional photographs in consultation with one of the museum’s tour guides.

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum does not have an elevator, nor is it equipped with lifts.

At this time, Macculloch Hall Historical Museum does not have an accessible bathroom.


Garden Access

The garden is accessible through the driveway gate. The walk up the gentle grade of the driveway is over a hard packed gravel surface. The garden contains a variety of surfaces and levels. The garden lawn, though level, can be uneven.
