The John F. Peto Studio Museum is a fully accessible site.

An American Sign Language or a Spanish language interpreter can be provided without charge with two weeks advance notice.  While the upstairs rotating exhibit galleries are not wheelchair accessible, we have filmed the exhibits, so please check with the Museum regarding availability of a video of the exhibit.  With two weeks’ notice, works from an existing exhibit can be brought from an upstairs gallery to the ground floor and described and discussed by the Curator or a docent.  All exhibits are photographed and added to our website after the closing.  We strive to make our programs accessible to all. We maintain an ADA Advisory Board, provide large print materials upon request, have accessible parking and entrances, and an educational, captioned video on John F. Peto and his Studio, which can be viewed in our wheelchair-accessible reception room.  The artist’s Studio itself is also wheelchair-accessible.

For accommodations, please contact the Museum and leave a detailed message with your request by calling 732-929-4949 at least two weeks prior to any program or exhibit.
