The Brownsville Museum of Fine Art is designed to be accessible for its variety of guests, where patrons are accommodated to the greatest degree possible so that their condition does not affect their experience.
The BMFA incorporates into its design easy interactivity with low physical effort. This includes the front entrance wheelchair-ramp, a wheelchair-accessible double door entrance, specially designated restroom stall with assisting handrails, even-level flooring throughout building, and a water fountain installed at sitting height. All areas are marked with a wheel-chair accessible plaque that includes Braille print. The building design is for efficient commuting and comfortably with minimum fatigue. Tabletop counters both at the front desk and in the areas where we conduct our lessons are at a comfortable height for persons both sitting and using a wheelchair.
Size and spacing are provided for approach, reach, smooth maneuvering, and use, regardless of the visitor’s body size, posture, or mobility. We offer areas spacious enough for social distancing walkers, oxygen tanks, and wheelchair ease-of-access, ensuring that patrons of every condition enjoy the inclusive atmosphere that the BMFA provides to improve their visit and engagement.
