The Musée de la Romanité awarded the Tourisme & Handicap label

The Musée de la Romanité was awarded the French Tourisme & Handicap (T&H) label for the 4 categories of disability: hearing, mental, motor and visual, at the Interdepartmental Commission on Tourism & Disabilities, held on the 18th November 2021 in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone. This label was awarded for a period of 5 years.

The process to obtain the French Tourisme & Handicap label began in February 2021, and includes five compulsory steps: submit the application, support from the local T&H unit, assessment audit according to a set of specifications, approval from the territorial board and then finally, promotion of the label.
This label was the next logical step for the museum, in keeping with their commitment to accessibility since they opened in 2018, and has allowed reception staff to be trained in welcoming visitors with a disability, new accessibility equipment to be installed and various improvements to be made over a 5-year period.
