Visiting Independently

All areas are accessible to all visitors. “La Rivière” (The River) is a long leather pathway through the permanent collections, offering a number of interactive tools and seats. It also helps visitors to find their way around the collections.

Major exhibitions include several accessibility features: tactile reproductions of works with audio commentary, an introductory video in French sign language, large-print and “easy to read and understand” room guides, and outlets for plugging in headphones or magnetic loops.

The museum offers audio guides, game-booklets, exploration guides  and apps to accompany your visit, available free at reception in the entrance hall.

The cloakroom can loan wheelchairs, walking frames, seat-sticks, push chairs, magnifying glasses, binoculars, torches and steps free of charge (no reservation).
