The Clyfford Still Museum is the steward of a collection that belongs to the community and is for the enjoyment of everyone. We are enriched by the diversity of the people we serve and the variety of ideas they bring to the organization.
The Clyfford Still Museum is continually working to make Museum programs and exhibitions accessible to all visitors. The Museum does not discriminate on the basis of disability and strives to provide its visitors with disabilities equal access to its facilities, programs, services, and activities. Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon request, the Museum will endeavor to provide appropriate aids and services. For specific questions or to request an accommodation, please speak with a visitor experience representative at the reception desk at 720-354-4880 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, or email email@example.com.

Website and Digital Guide Accessibility
The Museum’s free digital guide through the Bloomberg Connects app also includes variety of built-in accessibility features include voice over, captions and audio transcripts, image zoom, and font size adjustment.
The Clyfford Still Museum is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of its website, clyffordstillmuseum.org, for all people with disabilities. The Museum has implemented an accessibility widget to improve the usability of our website, available in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. We will also be implementing over time the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA) as its web accessibility standard, which will also bring the Museum into conformance with the Section 5-8 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board.
Designated ADA accessible parking is available on level P2 of the Cultural Center Parking Garage. The garage entrance is on 12th Ave. between Broadway and Acoma St. A valid state-issued handicapped placard or license plate is required at all times. ADA accessible parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to enter your license plate number to pay in the garage.
Accessible parking spaces for visitors with disabilities are also available in the surface lot directly across from the Museum on Bannock St. Metered spaces are also available on Bannock St. and 12th Ave. near the Museum. A person with a mobility impairment using a valid disability placard or plate issued to them may park at Denver city meters for the time period authorized by the parking meter or for four hours, whichever is greater, without paying during the times parking is allowed. At the end of the authorized time period, the vehicle must be moved at least 100 feet from the metered parking space.
Visitors with mobility-impairments can be dropped off in the alley in back of the Museum, then proceed by sidewalk to the ramps to the front entrance.
