The Musée de la Romanité has signed the Mom’Art charter. The aim of this association is to help museums and cultural venues all over France to improve their welcome and services for families.
A ‘joyful museum’ is a welcoming one, one that you wish to visit and that you enter with pleasure and where you discover things while having fun. It is also an innovative museum within the range of everyone—both small and big.

Disabled persons

The Musée de la Romanité pays particular attention to the wellbeing of persons with disabilities who would like to visit the museum.

  • Entry is free for disabled persons and for 1 accompanying person. It is necessary to go to the ticket sales counter (priority access queue) to be given a free ticket (guide dogs accepted).
  • The entire museum is accessible for persons with reduced mobility—inside and outside, in the garden and on the rooftop either by means of lifts or access ramps.
  • A wheelchair is available for use by visitors at the reception of the museum but there is no reservation system as yet.
  • There is a drop-off point 50 metres from the entry to the museum (close to ‘Le Cheval Blanc’, the restaurant and Wine Bar) to make access easier for persons in wheelchairs.
  • Various facilities have been installed for the targeted welcoming of persons with a visual, hearing, physical or mental disability.

A tactile route has been installed along the permanent visit route and is centred on objects to touch—especially for the blind and people with poor sight.

A visioguide is also being finalised: specific routes will be shown in sign language for the deaf and hard of hearing, audiodescription for persons with poor vision, and information that is easy to read and understand. The commentaries provided (video in French sign language, audiodescription, information that is easy to read and understand) are designed by companies specialised in the production of accessible visit aid content.
