The Wende Museum regularly records and photographs visitors for non-commercial educational and documentary purposes. By entering the property, you consent to the use of your appearance and likeness in any and all media without limitation or reservation.

Smoking

The Wende Museum is a smoke-free environment.

Service Dogs

Service dogs — that is, dogs trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability — are welcome at the Wende Museum. Service dogs should be dressed as service animals, and must be on leash, remain on the ground, and be under the constant control and supervision of the handler. Service dogs must be housebroken. Cleaning up and disposing of liquid or solid waste is the sole responsibility of the service dog’s handler, and the museum suggests bringing necessary supplies and addressing this issue before entering the museum’s property. A service dog and its handler will be asked to leave if at any time the dog is out of control or deposits waste on museum property.
