An important part of our role is to make the art at the museum accessible to all. Knowing about the motivations and needs of our visitors means we can adapt our building, interpretation and programmes to improve visitors’ experiences. We want to ensure that every aspect of your visit enhances your encounter with art.
Our friendly and experienced staff also prepare guided visits on set themes, and workshops are held following the tours for young audiences. Tactile workshops are set up for blind and visually impaired visitors, as well as in sign language for the deaf or hard of hearing...
Everyone is very welcome as our programmes are particularly suitable for community groups new to gallery going, and groups from a wide range of backgrounds. Our regular group visitors include: access groups in further education, organisations for the elderly, mental health service user groups and community centres.
For les Abattoirs’ dedication to making the museum accessible to all audiences and particularly for our commitment to those from deprived neighbourhoods saw us win "Des musées pour tous" prize from the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in 2007.
