Accessibility

The Martin House seeks to make tours, programs, resources, and facilities accessible by removing barriers and providing opportunities for meaningful engagement.

Accessible Parking

There is a handicapped parking spot behind the Greatbatch Pavilion. Please call 716.856.3858 x301 in advance of your visit to inquire about availability.

Wheelchair / Mobility Access

The majority of the Martin House 75-minute tour is wheelchair accessible, with the exception of the 2nd floor of the Martin House and the pergola.

Our Greatbatch Pavilion Visitor Center and Museum Store are accessible, as are many of the outdoor areas, which can be accessed without reservations. The Martin House Plus tour is not wheelchair accessible.

There is a considerable amount of walking, standing, and stair-climbing involved in most of our tours. Please wear comfortable walking shoes. There are very few places to sit down on the tour.

Service Animals

The Martin House is happy to welcome service animals on site. We do not allow therapy animals into any of the historic or visitor spaces.
