Barrier-free Access
The museum is barrier-free and has an elevator (elevator door: 184 cm), which leads to the area of special exhibitions. The permanent exhibition ("The Shores of Austria") is located on the ground floor. The disabled parking lot is directly in front of the steplessly accessible museum entrance. A wheelchair accessible toilet is located on the ground floor.
Our exhibition openings are accompanied and translated by a sign language interpreter, if indicated in the programme. Every year the Vienna Folklore Museum hosts the barrier-free and inclusive open air short film festival dotdotdot.
