Children 5 & under
The Newport Art Museum's three-building campus includes the John N. A. Griswold House, the Cushing Memorial Gallery and the Gilbert S. Kahn Building, which houses our art school, the Coleman Center for Creative Studies. All three buildings are accessible to visitors using wheelchairs, walking aids, children's strollers or service animals. Our south parking lot off Downing Street provides easy access to all Museum buildings and grounds. Ramps on the south side of the Griswold House and the north side of the Cushing Gallery are accessible via the south lot, and provide access to the Griswold Houses' automatic doors.
Museums for All
The Museum is dedicated to being sure our collection, exhibitions and educational programming remain available to all. Present a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid form of photo ID for free admission for up to four individuals per card, during regular museum hours.
In 2017, the Museum joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to encourage families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.
