Yes, our Film Lawn is accessible for those using a wheelchair or mobility device. However, the path from the museum building to the lawn involves somewhat steep ramps and uneven pathway surfaces. After the film concludes, guests must exit the Gardens by way of a steep hill. Golf cart rides are available by request for those with mobility needs before and after the film.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available to our guests at no charge and on a first-come, first-served basis.
