For visitors with mobility disabilities:

  • Elevators: An elevator serving floors 1-6 is located north of the main entrance on the lobby level (L1). (To access this, walk past the stage on the left-hand side, and it is located in the back corner.) The elevator serving the lower level (LL)—home to the main exhibit hall and coat check—is past and to the right of the stage.
  • Wheelchair-accessible seating: Available in all theaters.
  • Curbside drop-off: Curbside drop-off is available on Erieside Avenue in front of the Rock Hall's plaza.
  • On-site wheelchairs and strollers: Visitor Services has a limited supply of wheelchairs and strollers to borrow at no charge at the coat check desk on the lower level (LL). Call (216) 515-1266 at least 24 hours in advance, and we'll reserve one for you.
  • Renting motorized mobility scooters: Motorized mobility scooters are available to rent at the main lobby (L1) box office for $10/day with a photo ID on a first-come, first-served basis. (Pick-up and return is at coat check on the lower level (LL).) Unfortunately, we can't reserve these in advance.
  • Accessible parking: There are several accessible metered parking spots located along East 9th street, north of Erieside Avenue. However, these tend to fill up fast. (Remember to bring change if you plan to park at the meters!) Other nearby parking locations are the Pier Lot, the 9th Street and Marginal Lot, as well as the Great Lakes Science Center's parking garage.
  • Seating: The Rock Hall has plenty of benches scattered around the exhibit spaces so visitors can sit and enjoy the surroundings, or simply take a breather.
