Service Animal Policy

The Broad is committed to welcoming a wide and diverse audience, including those assisted by trained service animals. The Broad complies with the American with Disabilities act (ADA), which defines service animals as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. The Broad allows service dogs in all public areas of the museum.

The Broad does not allow Emotional Support Animals (ESA) inside the museum. Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals, or Therapy Animals which provide comfort do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.

The following questions will be asked of each guest with a service dog:

  • Is the service dog required because of a disability?
  • What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

If the dog is out of control or not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the dog from the museum.

Additional Information about Artworks on View

A few artworks on view have extra auditory and visual elements. Visitors who are uncomfortable with flashing lights and/or dark, enclosed spaces should bypass these artworks.

This installation is a mirror-lined room with flashing LED lights. Visitors physically enter a dark, enclosed space through a door that closes during the one-minute experience. Visitors may exit before their time ends.
