The entire Museum is barrier-free – and all rooms are accessible for wheelchair users. An elevator will take you from the ground floor into the basement as well as onto the first and second floors. The exhibition rooms in the cellar of the old townhouse can be easily accessed via a ramp. Our colleagues in the reception area will be only too pleased to help and show you the way.
The rest rooms for wheelchair users are situated on the ground floor behind the Museum shop. Additionally, lightweight folding chairs can be borrowed from the Museum’s ticket counter by anyone who would prefer to sit while viewing the exhibits.
The German Röntgen Museum is one of the few museums in Germany that offers a video guide for its permanent exhibition in German sign language. As was already the case with the existing audio guides, the acoustic information has been translated into sign language. This means that deaf visitors to the exhibition can now obtain specially prepared information at some 24 of the exhibit areas.
Besides this video tour through the new exhibition in sign language and a specific audio guide for the visually impaired, a special audio guide is now available in ‘plain language’ for people with learning disabilities. Thanks to the simple language used in this audio guide, it is particularly well suited for fellow citizens with a migrant background and with an insufficient command of German.
The aim of the City of Remscheid is to further open up the German Röntgen Museum for persons with disabilities pursuant to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The existing barrier-free accessibility will be continually extended and enhanced.
