Accessibility

A visit to the seventeenth-century canal-side house and the attic church involves climbing a lot of narrow stairs. So that the museum presents a challenge for visitors with limited mobility.

For people with limited mobility or impaired sight, the museum has made various facilities available so that you can enjoy a museum visit together with your accompanying helper.

The museum café and our temporary exhibition space are easily accessible. These areas are situated in the entrance building and can be accessed by elevator.

Blind and partially-sighted visitors

‘See more together’ audio tour

The special ‘See more together’ museum audio tour is designed for blind or partially-sighted visitors accompanied by a helper. The audio tour emphasises a sense-oriented experience of the seventeenth-century house: listen, smell and touch. To get an idea of the layout of the house and the attic church, we have a model which is there to be touched. The audio tour is free and does not need to be booked in advance.

Group guided tour

Besides audio tours for individuals, we also offer a special tour for small groups of blind and partially-sighted visitors. For more information and reservations contact boekingen@opsolder.nl of call +31 (0)20 310 88 88 (available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm).

Visitors with limited mobility and wheelchair-bound visitors

CoVisit

For visitors unable to climb stairs, we offer what we call a CoVisit tour. A specially furnished location has been set aside where you can follow a virtual visit to the museum, while your accompanier does the actual tour of the house. You remain in contact with each other via your phones and follow their route through the museum with an audio and visual connection. This means you get to visit together! The CoVisit tour is free and does not need to be booked in advance.

Deaf and hearing-impaired visitors

A printed version of the audio tour is available for deaf visitors and those with impaired hearing.

Free ticket for accompanier

People accompanying visitors with a disability do not need to buy a ticket.

Assistance dogs

The museum is accessible for visitors with an assistance or guide dog. However, the many stairs may not be suitable for all dogs.

Website

We have tried to make our museum website as accessible as possible for all our visitors. If you are experiencing problems or disrupted service please email us at pr@opsolder.nl.
