The 2nd floor Hoy Photography Gallery is served by an elevator. The closest accessible restrooms are located in Taylor Hall next to the Coat Room (access via a chair lift) or on the 2nd floor of Taylor Hall by using the Main Gate elevator.

Service Animals

Trained service animals providing assistance to a visitor with a disability are welcome. If you are visiting a non-public area of the museum, like our Print Study Room, please contact us in advance so we can plan together. Pets and emotional support animals are not allowed in the Loeb.
