Discovery Park of America is committed to providing our guests with a park and museum experience accessible for all ages and abilities.

Museum Parking

We have many accessible parking spaces at the front of each side of our parking lot providing easy access to our main entrance.


Wheelchairs and scooters for our guests are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All are free and can be accessed at the ticket counter. We regret that we are not able to take advance or phone reservations.


An elevator is accessible on all floors of the museum.

Service Animals

Trained service animals are welcome at Discovery Park. All service animals must remain on a leash or be harnessed at all times.

Museum and Park Exhibitions and Attractions

Discovery Park’s exhibits, restaurants, attractions and retail spaces are wheelchair accessible. There is also a large amount of seating available on each floor. A map can be downloaded and reviewed here in advance of your visit.

Visitors on the Spectrum

Discovery Park aims to create a welcoming and accessible museum experience for visitors with autism and sensory sensitivities. With that in mind, some sections of Discovery Park can be made available for a visit before or after hours with advance notice. Our staff can assist in selecting a day for your visit when we will likely be less busy. The nurse’s station on the entry-level is also a sensory-safe area. For more information, email


In Discovery Center, large restrooms are located on the main entrance level off the lobby on the lower level off Art Hall. Outside, restrooms can be found on each side of the park. Additionally, a medical room is available for those who need privacy, and a nurse is usually on staff during operating hours.
