By car

There are several parking areas near the museum, including reserved parking spaces (marked on the map).



Entrance to the building

The main entrance to the museum is via a large staircase. There is a second entrance with a lift, on the opposite side of the cloister, for which it is necessary to press the bell (at the main entrance) and wait for it to open.



Ticket office

The reception desk is high for a person in a wheelchair, so you may need the help of a companion or to ask the staff on duty to leave their workstation.

Visitor route

The visitor route is on one floor and the differences in level are overcome by ramps. In one of the room along the visitor route, there is a gallery area that is not accessible.

Due to the shape of some of the displays, it may be difficult on several occasions for people in wheelchairs or children, for example, to see the objects on display.



The toilets are accessible by people with disabilities (as indicated by law).

Additional facilities

Inside the museum there is a room with tactile reproductions, accompanied by Braille texts and audio guides, of some of the exhibits in the museum.
