Aspen Art Museum



Accessible Parking

Cars with a Handicapped Parking placard can park in the Reserved Handicapped Parking located next to the museum on Spring Street. Within the City of Aspen, handicapped parking is allowed in any legal parking space and is not subject to time limit or payment.

Accessible Restrooms

Accessible restrooms are available on Level 1, 3, and the Lower Level. Single user/all gender restrooms are located on the Lower Level.

Food & Drink

Food and drink from outside the museum are not permitted in the building. Beverages and food are available for purchase at SO on Level 3 and are only permitted in the café—they may not be carried into the galleries or other areas. Special requests may be accommodated in the Education Workshop with advance arrangements.

Large Print

Large-print versions of most exhibition guides are available at the Visitor Information Desk on Street Level.

Preparing for Your Visit

To prepare for your visit, please download our social narrative here. This document is a step-by-step guide of what to expect at the AAM with photographs and descriptions, ideal for visitors on the Autism spectrum and those who benefit from having clear expectations.

Service Animals

Service animals are allowed in most cases. The ADA defines a service animal as any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Service animals matching these criteria are allowed in the museum galleries, unless otherwise noted. Pets or companions are not allowed in the museum.

Special Needs

Special needs can be accommodated to the best of our ability with advance arrangements through our Education Department. We will always try to help where able.


Strollers are welcome in most galleries, unless otherwise noted. Strollers may, alternatively, be left in the Coatroom.

Verbal Description Tours

Verbal description tours can be scheduled with advance notice for those with low or no vision.


Wheelchairs are welcome everywhere in the building. A wheelchair is available free of charge on a first come, first served basis. Visit the Visitor Information Desk on Street Level for more information.

Gallery Seating

Lightweight folding Gallery Stools are available by request at the Visitor Information Desk on Street Level.
