In an effort to provide the best experience possible for all of our guests, the Barry Art Museum strives to adhere to ADA standards. All Museum entrances are accessible, there is an elevator to the second floor, and all areas of our galleries are accessible.

The Barry Art Museum has two wheelchairs on-site for guests’ use. Folding gallery stools are available alongside benches and chairs, and can be used throughout the Museum. Stroller-age children are welcome, but the Museum does not provide strollers for guests’ use.

Service dogs must be housebroken and must be under the full control of their owner at all times. In keeping with ADA requirements, the Barry Art Museum allows service dogs on the premises, if and only if they have been trained to perform a service. Service dogs not specifically trained to perform a service are not permitted inside the Museum. No other service animals are permitted inside the Museum.

Emotional support animals are not permitted on the ODU campus, and therefore are also not permitted inside the Museum.

Visitors that require chaperones must have 1 chaperone per 8 guests + must make reservations prior to arrival; children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
