Does Yankee Air Museum permit service animals on-site?

The Yankee Air Museum abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and allows service animals – that is, animals trained to perform specific tasks for an individual with a disability – into all public areas. Service animals are required to be under control at all times by their owners. This means they must be harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the animal’s work or the owner’s disability. In such cases, the owner must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls. Service animals must

The owner of a service animal may be asked to remove the animal from the premises if the animal is out of control and the owner does not take effective action to control it or if the animal is not housebroken. If the animal’s behavior warrants its removal from the Yankee Air Museum, the animal’s handler can stay without the animal.

The Yankee Air Museum abides by the ADA regarding the admission of service animals because they perform a specific job. However, animals such as “comfort animals,” “therapy animals,” “companion animals,” or “emotional support animals” are not service animals as defined by the ADA because they are not trained to perform a specific task for an individual with a disability. Therefore, they are not allowed into the Yankee Air Museum.
