At the current time, certain areas of the Suffolk County Museum are not fully handicapped accessible, due to architectural barriers inherent in the historic construction of the estate. The museum is now working with The Suffolk County Department of Public Works to implement Capital Project # 7450-
Modifications for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliance at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum
Planning funds for this project were appropriated by the Suffolk County Legislature in December 2000. After the New York State Historic Presevation Officer approved the planning phase, construction and remediation measures began in 2003. Although many areas at the museum have now been made handicapped accessible, it is still a work in progress. Thank you for your patience while the project continues.
Please note that all inaccessible areas of the museum are currently available for our handicapped guests to enjoy, via video tour in the Lancaster Room of the Mansion.
The video mansion tour, including tour of the Marine Museum and Stoll Wing, is available to all museum guests with a Grounds Pass.
