Openness, diversity... the Musée des Augustins has a clear, priority policy to improve conditions at the museum for the disabled and to facilitate visits by all potential visitors.
For many years, the museum has been making significant progress in opening its doors to all.
Cultural activities for all
The museum offers a wide range of original approaches with the clear goal of encouraging diversity among its visitors, while respecting the needs of each visitor. Sensory visits for the blind, partially sighted and fully sighted; visits and workshops for users of French Sign Language; visits through storytelling and mime accessible to the mentally handicapped...
Certain pre-existing activities are also redesigned: Little Artists, family workshops, sketching visits, etc. Follow the pictograms!
Several visit assistance tools are available to allow people to visit the museum freely: T coil compatible audioguides for the hard of hearing, multi-sensory kits, etc.
Working towards greater accessibility to the buildings
Although the museum does partially fulfill criteria for access for all, the team is working hard on finding intermediary solutions for the period until full access to all the collections is attained in the coming years. The museum is making progress on making adaptations to the buildings and has material to lend (folding walking stick stools and wheelchairs). Comfort is improving for people with reduced mobility during the interim period until the museum in entirely accessible.
