Our museum spaces are wheelchair accessible. The accessible entrance to the University of Toronto Art Centre is through the Croft entrance on the southwest side of University College. The accessible entrance to the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery is through the Tower Road entrance at Hart House. Due to construction, there is a detour between our two spaces. Please refer to this map for more information.
