People with impaired mobility have been taken into account in the Serlachius Museums.
Accessible Art Museum Gösta
At Art Museum Gösta, people with physical disabilities can park close to the museum entrance, in reserved parking spaces located in front of the manor.
Inside the building, walkways have been made wheelchair-accessible, and in the pavilion people can use the lift to access the different floors. Unfortunately, not all modern wheelchairs can fit in the lift to the second floor, as many of the manor’s facilities were completed in the 1930s.
Combined toilets for the disabled and nursery facilities are situated on the entrance floor of the pavilion. Art Museum Gösta also has a toilet for the disabled in the manor and on the ground floor of the pavilion, accessible by lift.
An induction loop has been installed on the exhibition premises and in Kivijärvi Hall.
