Accessibility

The physical and social accessibility is a priority for theAfricaMuseum.

  • The museum offers full access to people with disabilities
    • Large lifts ensure everyone can get to all the floors of the new building
    • In the renovated museum, the old spiral staircases have been replaced by platform lifts
    • The museum toilets have been adapted.
       
  • For people with visual impairments, the museum paid attention to clear signage and the legibility of museum labels.
     
  • The museum also examined content, creating a new permanent exhibition that will appeal to all audiences, which is also easy to understand.
     
  • Special, discounted tariffs are offered for less affluent visitors.

    Several other initiatives, to improve the museum’s accessibility, were taken with the support of Toerisme Vlaanderen
