Accessibility at CAM

Cameron Art Museum seeks to be a safe and welcoming space for all. We strive to continuously improve our accessibility efforts through community. feedback, training for our staff and volunteers, our Accessibility Advisory Committee.

In 2023, Cameron Art Museum assembled its first Accessibility Advisory Committee, comprised of user experts and community members to help inform all museum departments on best practices, considerations, and ongoing improvements. Our committee convenes quarterly and offers guidance throughout program and exhibition development.

If you have questions about our policies, need assistance planning your visit, or have questions or feedback about accessibility at Cameron Art Museum, please email our Deputy Director of Operations, Georgia Mastroieni,

Getting to the Museum

Cameron Art Museum is located at 3201 South 17th Street in Wilmington, North Carolina. We have a large visitor parking lot adjacent to the front entrance, with a wheelchair accessible ramp. Vehicles are welcome to pull up to these ramps and park along the sidewalk for easy drop off and pick up. We also have four handicap parking spots.

We have an automatic door that opens inward toward the building with large buttons, both outside and inside the museum, to activate. All our indoor exhibition areas are located on one level, accessed through the main entrance. Accessible restrooms are available on this level.
