Accessibility

The permanent exhibition creates accessibility through technology, architecture, design and innovative concepts. The barrier-free offers always engage at least two of the senses.

Access for People with Reduced Mobility

The ground floor of the main house as well as the exhibition furniture are wheelchair accessible. The house has a ramp at the entrance, a wheelchair accessible toilet, a wheelchair, specially widened doorways and an elevator to the floors above. Most of the garden monument is also accessible by wheelchair.

Access Through Language

All German and English texts in the permanent exhibition use plain language and a font that was developed by and for people with visual impairments and learning disabilities.

We also offer an audio-guide in German, English, Hebrew, French, Polish, Arabic, Spanish and Italian.

Access for People with Hearing Impairments

Induction receivers are installed in the exhibition (VIA induction handset from molitor), which are suitable for interference-free audio transmission for hearing aids with a T-coil. In addition, headphones with an induction loop can be borrowed for the audio-guide. For the educational programs we also have access to an FM system (Phonak Roger SoundField complete solution with four Phonak Roger MyLink radio receivers).

Access for Visually Impaired and Blind People

The exhibition offers tactile exhibits and floor plans. A tactile floor guidance system leads through the exhibition. In addition, visually impaired people have the option of inverting and enlarging the content of many monitors.
