Guidance system

The MdbK wants to be a place for everyone. Therefore, a guidance system is gradually being implemented to enable a comfortable and barrier-free visit to the museum. The experiences of visitors were taken into account when developing the system. It starts with contrast markings at the entrances to the museum and on the stairs, tactile reliefs and Braille lettering in the stairwells.

Museum entrances

The Katharinenstraße and Böttchergässchen entrances are suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs. The doors can be opened automatically and are provided with contrast markings.

In the museum

All floors of the MdbK are accessible via a lift with wide doors and low controls for wheelchair users. The toilets in the basement are barrier-free. There is sufficient seating on all floors and in the exhibition rooms. Wheelchairs can be borrowed from the ticket office. There are tactile reliefs and Braille signs in the stairwells.

MdbK [hubs]

The MdbK has a total of seven inclusive information stations that provide new access to works in the collection presentation. Further information on the project can be found here.

Accessible web is important to us - We are currently working on the function for restricted use! Thank you for your understanding!
