Accessibility assessment

Object description

The museum is partially accessible. The reception desk is located to the left of the entrance. The lower level is accessible via a temporary ramp on the left side of the lobby and houses temporary exhibitions. The central staircase and lift can only be accessed via stairs, so a temporary ramp is installed here as well. Plans are underway to construct a permanent ramp. The lift is located next to the main staircase, but it is part of the private part of the museum, so the staff must enable access. The accessible sanitary facilities are located close to the lift. The exhibition spaces on the first floor are arranged in a circular route and are spacious and level. The exception is a small section of the exhibition that is only accessible via stairs. The museum has some exhibition materials that are suitable for tactile exploration. Some glass display cases in both the temporary and permanent station encroach on the height of the space and constitute a safety risk.
