Mobility Devices, Baby Carriers, Strollers, and Service Animals


Mobility Devices, Baby Carriers, and Strollers

Manual and electric wheelchairs are welcome in all areas of the museum. Single-seat scooters and knee scooters, both manual and electric, are also permitted, as are walkers, crutches, canes, braces, and other similar manual devices.

Child carriers must be worn by an adult to the front of their body.

Single-occupant strollers are permitted in most areas if they are pushed by an adult. Oversize and jogging strollers may not be brought into the museum. Guests are invited to check out single-occupant strollers at the front desk if necessary, but availability is not guaranteed during busy times.

To ensure the safety of all guests and the art, other types of mobility devices including tricycles, carts, pull-behind wagons, hoverboards, and Segways are not permitted.



Service Animals 

The Stanley Museum of Art welcomes all, including those assisted by service animals, to visit our galleries, connect with our collections, and participate in our programs. The Stanley complies with Iowa law and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), and allows service animals trained to perform specific tasks for an individual with a disability into all public areas of the museum.

The museum does not allow Emotional Support Animals (ESA) on site. Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals, or Therapy Animals are not considered service animals under the ADA.

The following questions will be asked of each visitor with a service animal:

• Is the service animal required because of a disability?

• What work or task has the animal been trained to perform?

If an animal presents a threat to other visitors or to works of art, or becomes a nuisance, the handler will be asked to remove the animal from the premises.
