Accessibility


One of the most important goals of our project is to provide an accessible environment and foster a culture of inclusiveness.

For these purposes, we have created an accessibility map that will help you to independently assess the physical accessibility of a particular itinerary. On the map we have indicated ramps, accessible toilets, as well as other aspects of the environment and areas that are difficult to access or where people may be susceptible to sensory overload.


For people with different forms of disability, we have developed adapted versions of museum itineraries. Using a special filter, you can choose a route in Russian sign language, a route using an audio commentary or a route in an easy-to-read version. Here you can also find the texts of audio-descriptive tours that blind and visually impaired visitors can use to tour the museums independently.

It should also be noted that the website of the “Four Museums” has been audited for digital accessibility.


All our work is the result of the cooperation of an inter-institutional team, which includes employees from the four museums, specialists in different fields, independent experts and consultants with disabilities:
