Judge for yourselves: reserved parking spaces, moving walkway access to reception and tactile ramp, tactile model of the whole building , adapted facilities inside the building, access ramps and ramps to visit temporary exhibitions, guide strips on the floor, audio guides, adapted reception furniture, reserved seats in the audiovisual space...

All the single storey exhibition space has been designed to be accessible to all and to cater for all types of visitors in a recreational way. 

Coherent welcoming facilities for disabled people now have to be taken further by working towards the creation of a natural site which can be experienced by these visitors with their infectious enthusiasm. Training in welcoming the disabled is also on the agenda.

Adapted reception facilities, tactile model, audio guides... are some of the accessories adapted for disabled visitors to the Park House.
