Wheelchair accessibility in some of our historic houses is limited due to door sizes, door thresholds, stairs, and other obstacles. A number of the historic houses have been modified to accommodate accessibility needs, and the UWF Historic Trust works hard to continually update all of the facilities. However, there are a few historic houses that are unable to be made fully accessible, as the necessary changes will significantly alter the buildings. If you need a wheelchair, one is available for use at the T. T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum.
The buildings that are wheelchair accessible and that have accessible bathrooms include: the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum, the Voices of Pensacola, the Pensacola Children’s Museum, the Museum of Commerce, the Museum of Industry, Old Christ Church, the L & N Marine Terminal, and the Bowden Building.
There are a number of designated handicapped parking spaces located in visitor parking lots and available in select onstreet parking areas.
Please contact the UWF Historic Trust (850-595-5985) if you have questions regarding the accessibility of our facilities. We look forward to your visit!
