Difficulty of accessibility for people with motor disabilities Accessible for people with visual disabilitiesAccessible for people with hearing impairmentAccessible for people with mental disabilities

Making the museum accessible to as many people as possible is a priority. The Cheusses hotel benefits from the state mark "Tourism & Handicap" since 2011, for auditory, mental and visual deficiencies.


Tourism and disability label for auditory, mental and visual impairments

The site is classified as Historic Monuments. This is why some accessibility work on the building can not be undertaken.

The interior and exterior of the hotel de Cheusses may not be suitable for people with motor disabilities (inclines, pavements, gravelled courses, grassed areas, steps, etc.). It is strongly recommended to be accompanied. Only the ground floor of the museum is accessible to people in wheelchairs.

Work to improve the general accessibility of the museum is planned.
