Guests enjoy a touch tour at the UMFA

The UMFA is an ADA accessible building.

The UMFA is committed to welcoming everyone. We believe that access for people of all abilities, ages, resources and backgrounds helps inspire critical dialogue and deepens the level of engagement for all visitors. We seek to establish a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment that ensures the widest range of people will enjoy, learn from, and be inspired by the UMFA exhibitions and programs.
