Due to the nature of the architecture at The Gables’ campus, our historic house museums are not wheelchair accessible. Our visitor center, restrooms, Colonial Revival gardens, grounds, and a portion of our Museum Store are wheelchair accessible. Information is available for visitors that cannot access our historic house museums.
Tours last approximately 45 minutes and take place on multiple levels in historic houses from the 1600s and 1700s. Visitors are standing, walking, or climbing stairs during these experiences. There is a discounted Accessibility ticket available on our “Purchase Tickets” page which allows access to the first floor of the Mansion and information regarding the upper floors for those who can access the building, but are unable to climb stairs.
