Accessible restrooms are located on the lower level of the Lilly House.
Service animals are welcome.
We have outdoor wheelchairs available to borrow for the day, on a first come first served basis. On busy days (holidays, special events, and weekends) demand is higher for wheelchairs. Guests are always welcome to bring your own manual wheelchair, motorized wheelchair, or electric mobility scooter to use while visiting the Newfields campus.
Portions of The Garden include accessible pathways. Newfields staff at the Admissions desk are happy to direct guests to our online Garden map and point out these pathways upon arrival.
Wheelchairs are available for free on a first-come, first served basis.
- Inside the house an elevator is available that can take guests between Floors 1 and 2. Because the elevator car dates to the 1930s and is relatively small, a staff member will operate it for any guest who wishes to use it.
- The staircase in Lilly House is circular with 16 steps (8” rise) leading from the top of the ground-floor ramp to Floor 1, and 23 steps (7” rise, with one landing) leading from Floor 1 to Floor 2. Both stairs feature handrails.
- While moving through the rooms on Floor 1, guests will encounter different floor surfaces (wood, marble, linoleum, carpet) and two small ramps that bridge a 3½-inch change in floor elevation on the west side of the house.
- As you marvel at the beauty of Lilly House, seating options are available throughout. Sit and stay as long as you like.
