Accessibility

The Museu Frederic Marès is implementing measures to ensure everyone with functional diversity can enjoy universal accessibility to the building and the heritage it conserves.

We are taking part in the Apropa Cultura socio-educational programme, an inclusive recreational initiative offering guided tours for people at risk of social inclusion. We are also involved in the Estimul’Art programme offering museum visits to people with Alzheimer’s disease.
