The Wisconsin Maritime Museum welcomes all people. We are committed to making our exhibits, programs and collections accessible.

We offer:

  • Complimentary wheelchair check-out
  • Sensory Backpacks at the Front Desk
  • Noise-reducing ear muffs
  • USS Cobia virtual tours
  • Prerecorded submarine tour
  • Tour scripts in English, Spanish, and Russian and for the deaf or hard of hearing

Service animals are welcome at the Museum.

For more information, please call (920) 684-0218.


USS Cobia is a designated National Historic Landmark and as such, is not accessible by wheelchair. There are two sets of stairs on Cobia and seven watertight doors. We have an example of these doors for visitors to test out.


Accessible parking is available in front of the Museum and in the lot across the street. Ramps lead to the front doors. Elevators make each floor accessible.


Two all-gender restrooms are available on the lower level of the museum.

Most of our restrooms have baby-changing tables in both the men’s and women’s restrooms.

All Hands on Deck

All Hands on Deck is the Museum’s initiative to make education and learning accessible to all learners. We believe true accessibility removes physical, cognitive, financial and geographic barriers; this is what we strive for.
All Hands on Deck supports the creation of materials to make learning more accessible for people with disabilities. This includes the complimentary availability of a communication book, a social narrative, fidgets and headphones at the front desk.
A key piece of All Hands on Deck is the Fund that financially supports visits to the museum for underserved groups. To request support from the Fund, contact the Education Department.
