things-to-know

#alwaysfree: Thanks to the generous support of the City of Dothan and all of our members, general admission to WMA is always free!

Please take a photo to remember your visit! (Just don’t use a flash. Over time, flashes will damage the artwork.)

It’s so easy to park at WMA! There is a lot on the south side of the building and additional parking at the Dothan Civic Center across the street from the museum. It’s also an easy stroll from downtown shops and restaurants, and there’s a bike rack out front for those who prefer to arrive on two wheels.

WMA is handicap accessible. There is a ramp at the main entrance (facing Museum Avenue) and an elevator to access all galleries and the studio.

We love children and babies and think it’s never to early to expose your wee ones to art. Strollers are permitted in the galleries, but please take care to navigate safely around the art.

Prefer to take a guided tour? We’ve got you covered! WMA’s art educator, Amanda Holcomb, can arrange museum tours and art activities for groups of all sizes and ages. More information here.

We love all four-legged creatures at WMA, but some must be relegated to the artwork. Only service animals are permitted in the galleries. (Well-behaved pets are more than welcome to attend Screen on the Green!)

Can I touch the art? Um, no. Well, sometimes. Mostly never. Look for signs and instructions.

No weapons are permitted at WMA.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.
