The Treviso City Museums are accessible to visitors with disabilities, each of the sites providing:
- Complimentary admission for both the person with disabilities and their companion
- Accessible toilets
- Stair lifts are available to allow access to the exhibition halls, with staff available to help.
As part of their commitment to improving access to information, culture, and knowledge to all –– as enshrined in Articles 9 and 30 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities –– the Treviso City Museums participate actively in projects organised by local associations designed to provide appropriate tools to help people of all intellectual levels widen their understanding of the cultural heritage that belongs to all of us.
Since 2017, for example, the Treviso City Council, as well as its Museums Department, have been involved with the initiative entitled “Disabili in Arte” (Disability in the Arts) whose activities take place in the exhibition areas of the Museo Bailo, and are run by the Fondazione Il NostroDomani.
By means of guided tours to the museum’s treasures, the project aims to make art accessible to groups of visitors with cognitive and/or physical disabilities, with activities led by specialist personnel skilled in accessible communications, and the use of techniques such as Timeslips and storytelling.
