The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec is an establishment adapted to the needs of persons with a disability.
In conformance with the Act to Secure Handicapped Persons in the Exercise of their Rights with a View to Achieving Social, School and Workplace Integration (RSQ, c E-20.1), the Musée publishes an annual action plan with respect to persons with a disability.
Interested parties may find more details in this plan about the measures taken by the Musée to promote access by persons with a disability to the Musée’s buildings, services and activities.
The following measures have been taken through the Musée’s action plan:
- Parking spaces located in front of the main entrance to the Musée are offered to persons holding a handicap sticker issued by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec. A staff member of the Musée can assist you in getting around the parking lot. Just ask the person on duty at the gate when you arrive.
- Wheelchairs are available free of charge at the cloakroom. Note that the Musée cannot take advance reservations for wheelchairs.
- On demand, the Musée offers free admission to a person accompanying a visitor with a disability. While it is not obligatory to obtain this free admission, visitors holding a Tourist and Leisure Companion Sticker (TLCS) are invited to present it at the reception desk to obtain free admission.
- The MNBAQ offers the Accès-Musée program (French only) to recognized non-profit community organizations that represent, in particular, the physically or mentally disabled. Such organizations have access free of charge to the MNBAQ. To obtain additional information, please consult the registration form.
