The main entrance has two sets of heavy doors with push buttons. There are additional doors without push buttons to the inner gallery. There is ample space to maneuver a mobility device without any sharp turns.

The bathrooms are equipped with support bars but the depth of the sink and door handle style may be challenging for some patrons. The larger bathroom is equipped with a baby changing station.
