Wave Hill House is located along a paved route with moderate changes in grade. The ground floor and lower level of Wave Hill House are wheelchair-accessible. There is an accessible, ground-level entrance at the front of the building with a power-assist door. The restroom on the ground level is all-gender and ADA-compliant. Additional ADA-compliant restrooms are available on the lower level, which can be accessed by an elevator. The Toscanini Room is located on the second floor of Wave Hill House; an elevator is available. The doorway into the Toscanini Room on that floor is only 34 inches wide; some wheelchairs will find it difficult to enter that space.
