We aim to provide a friendly, accessible environment for all our visitors and the widest possible access to our building.
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.
The exhibition The Human Journey includes a number of features designed to enhance accessibility to the vision impaired. There are a number of objects that can be touched, such as skeletons and skulls. There is also an audio guide available.
