For those with disabilities, we encourage you to visit our Accessibility page (http://www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/plan/accessibility/) on the Foundation’s website. You will find information for the visual- and hearing-impaired, as well as those with limited mobility. You may make the Institute staff aware of your disability with your registration information should you choose to do so. Institute programming requires 3-5 miles of walking each day in hot, humid temperatures. Please keep this in mind when considering your individual participation. Should you need to rent a wheelchair while you are here, you may contact the Visitor Services Coordinator at (800) 246-2099. Please note that the Colonial Williamsburg staff will be unable to help assist with pushing, pulling, or lifting any equipment that helps you with mobility.
