Alongside the Plateforme 10 museums and in line with its long-standing commitment, mudac encourages the global inclusion of people with disabilities and barrier-free access.

People with reduced mobility

The entire Photo Elysée and mudac building is accessible to people with reduced mobility. Adapted toilets are available on each level of the building.

The entrance to the museum is about 500 metres from Lausanne train station; the access pavement has a steep incline.
Folding chairs are available for people with disabilities. Two wheelchairs are available on request at the building reception.

Two PMR spaces are available at the end of the Av. Ruchonnet access (GPS coordinates 46°31’06.6 “N 6°37’29.7 “E).

  • Note: the Plateforme 10 site and the SBB station, are currently under reconstruction – any possible diversion via alternative access routes will be indicated on site.

People with a hearing impairment

All public guided tours are accessible to the hearing impaired thanks to the Comfort-Audio-Phonak magnetic loop system. The magnetic loop works with all hearing aids equipped with a T position.

The magnetic loop system amplifies the voice of the guides. People equipped with the system can follow the tour comfortably even if they are several metres away from the guide. The device is discreet and very easy to use.

  • For the hearing impaired who are not equipped with a hearing aid or who have a device without a T-position, portable receivers are available on site.
  • Sign language interpreters are welcome for public guided tours.

People with visual impairment

Guide dogs are welcome in the entire building, including the exhibition halls.

The association L’Art d’inclure offers cultural activities, including museum visits, adapted to people with visual and hearing impairments and any interested members of the public:

Label Culture Inclusive

The “Inclusive Culture” label is awarded by the Inclusive Culture Service of Pro Infirmis to cultural institutions that make a lasting commitment to cultural inclusion and participation. As part of their mission to be open to all audiences, the museums of Plateforme 10 aim to promote barrier-free participation in cultural life for people with and without disabilities.

The label holders are committed to the following five areas of activity: cultural events, access to content, architectural access, employment opportunities and communication.
