Service Animals/ADA Compliance
We welcome all service animals to our museum. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed. This is posted in several places by the buildings entrance and the museum front door. The museum would prefer your service animal wear their vest to be easily identified. However, if it is not, according to ADA regulations, we may ask the following questions:
Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
These questions are allowed by ADA, Federal, and State regulations/laws. For more information, please see these regulations at: Service Animals | ADA.gov
