Everyone is entitled to communication during a museum visit. To enhance the experience of a museum visit and increase the possibility of participation for people with a communication impairment, please request our pictogram museum chart from the visitor service desk.


If necessary, visitors can reach every floor of our museum with the passenger lift (dimensions H:230 – L:140 – B:160). If it is not possible to use the regular lift with your disability aid, we also offer the use of our goods lift as an exception. Unfortunately, the third floor cannot be accessed by the goods lift.


There are two adapted toilets on the ground floor: one next to the lift and one next to the cloakroom. Baby changing facilities are also available in these toilets.


There is 1 accessible parking space in our own car park, which is located at the side of the museum. In your navigation system, enter 'Daemslunet' to find the museum car park. You can check in at the barrier. From the parking space, it is possible for wheelchair users to reach the main entrance of the museum via a ramp.
