Kelley House Museum ~ Accessibility

The Kelley House Museum welcomes all visitors.

Physical Accessibility

The first floor of the museum, the research office, and a portion of the museum grounds are wheelchair accessible. Due to the historic architecture, the second floor is not accessible to wheelchair users and other visitors who need to avoid stairs.

For planning purposes, please note the following:

  • Because of the historic nature of the house, there is no elevator to the second floor. We have provided a virtual tour to the second floor, which may be viewed on a large screen in the salon on the first floor. Alternatively, you may watch it here.
  • Entrance to the first floor of the Kelley House Museum is from 45007 Albion Street, Mendocino via moveable ramps.
  • Access to the second floor is via 16 steps.
  • Because of the wealth of original materials in the museum and office, visitors with respiratory difficulties may be sensitive to the air quality in the house.
  • Staff are present to answer questions about the spaces.
  • Parking: There are no designated parking spaces for visitors with disabilities. For assistance with arrival and parking, please call (707) 937-5791 or email in advance of your visit.

Service Animals
Service dogs are welcome throughout the property.
