Acoustiguide Audio Tour

The Acoustiguide Audio Tour, our random-access digital audio guide that offers recorded information about the masterpieces on view through a handheld listening device, is t-coil compatible. The system provides up to three hours of material in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish and is included in the price of admission. Transcripts of the Acoustiguide Audio Tour script are available at the Acoustiguide desk.

 

Hearing Induction Loop

The Music Room is equipped with a hearing induction loop for the benefit of visitors with hearing aids fitted with a “T” switch. Visitors may use the “T” switch for direct transmission of audio for the film Introduction to  The Frick Collection, lectures, concerts, and other programs in the Music Room.

 

Audiovisual Presentation

The Introduction to The Frick Collection film is open captioned. For more information, see Film Introduction.

 

Wheelchair Access

The museum and library are accessible to visitors who use wheelchairs or walkers. Due to the architectural limitations of this landmarked building, regrettably some large wheelchairs cannot fit in our elevators. The entrance width of the elevator is 27 inches and the car is 48 inches deep. We have small wheelchairs available if needed. (The Museum and Library have wheelchairs available for visitors on a first-come / first-served basis.) 

The wheelchair ramp is just to the left of the main entrance of the museum on 70th Street, through a gate labeled "Service and Office Entrance." Open the gate or call for assistance using the call box located to the left of the gate, and proceed down the ramp to the basement Receiving Room. The security staff will assist visitors in wheelchairs from the Receiving Room to the ground floor galleries or the library reading rooms via an elevator(s). An elevator is also available for visitors needing assistance from the ground floor to the lower level special exhibition galleries. A fully accessible rest room is located on the ground floor.
