Most historic buildings were not originally designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Providing access (interior and exterior) for persons with disabilities in ways that preserve the character of the historic property is a challenge that requires creativity and collaboration. Although we still have much work to do to be fully accessible, we do offer the following and welcome you to the museum.

Our site currently consists of:

  • The parking lot is paved with curb cut to a soft gravel pathway.
  • The main door has a low threshold and the back door has ramp access (all doors are propped open).
  • The main floor of this historic building allows for access using mobility devices although fixed machinery creates some narrow spaces.
  • The lower level is only accessible via a wooden staircase. A video of this area is available and staff are on hand to share stories and answer questions.
  • Seating is available both within the museum and outside.
  • Gender-neutral washroom on-site.
  • The Wile Carding Mill is proud to be an Aira Access Partner.

We will update this page as we make improvements.
