The Pensacola MESS Hall is committed to making our exhibits, programs, and services accessible to everyone, including those with special needs. We have a designated accessible parking space and a nearby ramp. Unfortunately, the museum main entrance is up steps, but there is a doorbell at the top of the ramp. All bathrooms are unisex and accommodate companions and wheelchairs.

Please let our staff know if there are any ways they can help make your visit as fulfilling as possible.

For families with individuals sensitive to crowds and noise, we recommend visiting on weekday afternoons during the school year. Attendance is usually low, and the museum environment is more calm.
