Accessibility at The Met Cloisters is somewhat limited for wheelchair users and others who need step-free access due to the building’s landmark status. From the main entrance to the admissions desk there are approximately 60 stairs as well as smaller staircases and cobblestones when exiting the Museum. Visitors requiring step-free access can be dropped off at an alternate entrance. Please contact the Museum in advance or see a security officer at the main entrance for details.
A free shuttle service is available to visitors requiring step-free access. The pick-up stop is located near the Postern entrance (see map) and will transport visitors to and from an accessible entrance inside the Museum’s courtyard. The service is available between 10 am–5 pm. For questions concerning the shuttle, please contact CloistersAdmissions@metmuseum.org or call 212-731-1127.
