Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

Visitors with disabilities

In order to offer culture to the widest possible public, the diversity and specific needs of all visitors are taken into consideration. To this end, many tools and materials are available, some of which can be made available to unaccompanied visitors: documents in large type, induction loops, wheelchairs, etc.

In the collections and exhibitions, admission is free for disabled visitors and their guest or helper. Visits and workshops can be tailored to the requirements of the people responsible for groups.
