Accessibility Ramps Installed in Memorial Hall

Two new pedestrian ramps have been constructed in Memorial Hall: one at the main steps and one leading to the north elevator.

These ramps were very carefully crafted by our stonemasons. First, the original marble floor was cut and the materials carefully removed. This same marble was then re-fashioned into ramps, in order to preserve the overall appearance of Memorial Hall, while making it—and the Replica Lodge Room—accessible to those in wheelchairs.

Since their installation in 2014, these ramps have been used by thousands of guests, and we have continued to work to make the Memorial’s many offerings more accessible.
