The List welcomes all visitors to our galleries, events, and programs, and we provide resources and accommodations free of charge to make exhibitions and special events more accessible.

The List galleries and building are wheelchair accessible. Visitors in wheelchairs can access the List from the ramp on Ames Street. The entrance to the first floor closest to Ames Street––directly across from the ramp––is equipped with swinging power doors.

As the List’s public art collection is located in exterior and interior spaces across the Institute, accessing certain spaces can provide some challenges for visitors with limited mobility. For a comprehensive guide to accessible locations across campus, please visit MIT Student Disability Services, or refer to the MIT Campus Accessibility Map to plan your route.

Portable, folding stools are available for use in our galleries.

Handicapped-accessible parking is located nearby at the intersection of Ames and Amherst Streets.

Bartos Theater is an auditorium located on the Lower Atrium level of our building that is frequently used for the List’s events and programs. Visitors can use the elevator located across from the List’s galleries to access the lower level.
