The Museum in Comfort

A visit guide is available free of charge. It includes a map of the different trails to help visitors find their way and choose their trail.

Multimedia options accompany visitors on their trail.

At the museum entrance there are open-access computers to help visitors find out as much as possible about the museum and to design a trail which meets their own desires and then to print it.
There are Interpretation Salons at regular intervals throughout the permanent collections. Visitors can take a break and ask questions about donors, artists, and works which arise after discovering the galleries. Answers can be found on open-access computers or books on open display.

Guided visits and workshops

The majority of the guided visits and practical artistic workshops are accessible to people with mental disabilities. Visits based on senses and perceptions involving choreography, music and story-telling are highly recommended.
