Inside The Museum

INDOOR EXHIBITS – Drake Well Museum and Park’s 10,000 square foot gallery features over 530 unique artifacts. The majority of the gallery is handicap and wheelchair accessible, with many of our displays, exhibits, and interactives being ADA compliant.

OUTDOOR EXHIBITS – Select pieces of equipment are opened on a daily and seasonal basis by staff and volunteers. However, due to the historic nature, construction, safety issues, and the current condition of these pieces (i.e., narrow doorways, steps, and limited space within), not every area is ADA compliant or even accessible.

RESTROOMS – Restrooms in the Museum are located at the front of the lobby near the Visitor’s Desk Desk. The restrooms are located on the left-hand side of the hallway, starting with the Family Restroom which is ADA compliant. OUTDOOR RESTROOMS are located next to the Museum Store. There is a step up to enter these facilities.

MAPS of the Museum are provided at the Visitor’s Desk and the Museum Store.

SENSORY FRIENDLY SPACES – There are some spaces within the gallery that you should be aware of during your visit. Some spaces are quieter and less stimulating, while others may have lights or loud noises.
