The North Carolina Transportation Museum is fully accessible to persons with disabilities. The train ride is able to be boarded by wheelchair lifts and the train ride’s ADA car provides wheelchair tie downs for a smooth ride. Other rail cars are not wheelchair accessible due to the use of historic and antiquated rail passenger equipment, which is exempt from ADA regulations under US Code: Title 42: Section 12184.
Wherever possible, access to exhibits is accessible to those with disabilities, however, certain exhibits and programs do have limited accessibility due to narrow door openings on railroad passenger cars. For additional details, please contact us.
The site is walking-intensive, but wheelchairs are available on loan and handicapped persons or those with difficulty walking may drive between facilities (please contact one of our friendly visitor services staff upon your arrival).
Animals on Property
Due to the museum’s historic structures and transportation artifacts, no animals will be allowed on the property unless those animals are registered service animals.
