Information on facilities for visitors with impaired hearing, vision or mobility.
Induction loops are available in Cosmonova and the auditoriums on the lower floor. Cosmonova programmes are in Swedish, without subtitles.
Some of the exhibitions may appear to be unusually dark. This may be due to the presence of light-sensitive materials. Also, some of the older exhibitions are lit according to the standards in effect at the time they were created. Would you like to borrow lenses, ask at the Information desk at the main entrance.
