Support services for museum visitors.

The Museum of Pop Culture strives to be accessible for all visitors and provides a variety of support services to assist with your visit.

DROP-OFF AREA AND PARKING

A covered drop-off area is located inside the 5th Avenue N and Harrison Street Entrance of MoPOP and is adjacent to a three-minute load/unload zone. Accessible parking can be found across Harrison Street and at the Seattle Center 5th Avenue N garage. For more information on getting to MoPOP, please see our directions page.

WHEELCHAIR LOAN

MoPOP facilities are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs are available through the coat check at the 5th Avenue N and Harrison Street Entrance, as well as the South Entrance, located at 5th Avenue N and Broad Street under the Seattle Center Monorail. A piece of identification must be left with the coat check attendant for wheelchair loan. Wheelchairs are on a first-come, first-served basis, and the number of wheelchairs is limited.

MoPOP is dedicated to providing an educational and interactive experience for all visitors. MoPOP’s designers and architects worked with representatives from the Seattle disabled community to ensure that music fans and MoPOP employees with disabilities could count on easy access to the entire museum. The multi-level building is accessible via six elevators.
