Visitors Needing Special Assistance
The Meadow Brook Hall General House Tour is barrier-free and wheelchair accessible.
We do allow electric wheelchairs and scooters in Meadow Brook Hall. However, due to the tight spaces in the historic home, they are limited to select areas of the house.
Areas that cannot be safely traversed with electric wheelchairs or scooters include the children’s bedroom wings, the French room, Adams room and English rooms. If absolutely necessary, we can arrange for the reservation of one of Meadow Brook’s wheelchairs for the visitor to use instead.
