An update on the accessibility of establishments, cultural programming and the website.

Accessibility of institutions

Since the 2000 years, the National Museum of the Navy has been part of a process of actions for the disabled public and the so-called public of the social field, in order to tend towards an accessibility to all the public. This approach was reinforced in 2015 by the filing of an Ad'AP (programmed accessibility agenda) for the compliance of all its establishments, and the launch of the project of complete renovation of the museum in Paris in 2017 .

We invite you to browse the pages of each establishment to learn more about their accessibility.

(The pages of each establishment are in progress)

Cultural programming is specific to each institution. The different activities are not specifically designed for people with disabilities. We invite you to get closer to the teams on site, by mail or telephone, to adapt the offer to your needs.

Right to compensation

It is important to remember that under Article 11 of the February 2005 Act, the disabled person has the right to compensation for the consequences of his disability, regardless of the origin and nature of his disability, his age or his lifestyle.
As a result, each organization is obliged to take the necessary measures to give access, within a reasonable time, to the information and functionalities sought by the disabled person, whether the content is subject to a derogation or not.

Derogated contents

  • YouTube video player.
  • The Musée de la Marine is committed to producing a text transcript of its videos and synchronized audiodescription if necessary on future videos.
  • PDF products before 2020
  • Virtual exhibition program in Flash technology


To better meet the criteria of web accessibility, the National Museum of the Navy undertakes to completely overhaul its website by 2022. As a result, the current site will not be corrected. Only new publications on the site will be accessible by its contributors.
