The restoration of the castle, undertaken since 1990, and the successive developments of the Paradise Tours, the Donjon and the Madeleine Tower have improved the reception of visitors and the cultural offer.
The museum and the castle are not accessible to wheelchair users at all. The site is classified as Historic Monuments. This is why some accessibility work on the building can not be undertaken. However, work to allow access to the Madeleine Tower are planned.

Traffic and access to certain rooms can also be difficult for people with reduced mobility or having difficulty moving around (pregnant women, the elderly, people with reduced mobility, visually, psychically or mentally disabled).

The ticket counter and the bookshop are equipped with a magnetic induction loop for hearing impaired visitors.
