Getting Around
All of the museum’s public galleries and restrooms are accessible to wheelchair users and other visitors who cannot use stairs.

Service Animals
The Fowler welcomes Service Animals in accordance with ADA guidelines. In order to safeguard the works of art we display, we cannot allow Emotional Support Animals (ESA) into the exhibition galleries.

Accessible Parking

From Wilson Plaza, head toward the Janss Steps and turn left at the base of the steps. The ramp to the Fowler Lobby is 300 feet ahead on the right.

Visitors using rideshare or shuttle services may be dropped off behind the Museum at 305 Royce Drive, directly off Sunset Blvd.
Sidewalk access (beginning directly under the overhead bridge) to the opposite side of the Museum is continuous to the ramp to the Fowler Lobby.
