Museum accessibility

In this section you'll find information regarding the accessibility in the Jewish quarter of Girona as well as the Museum of Jewish History.
The board Patronat Call de Girona wants to guarantee everybody's right to culture.
The Museum of Jewish History is museum open to everybody and for everybody. Universal accessibility and social inclusion are part of our principles.
The Jewish quarter of Girona is characterized by its narrow streets, with steep slopes and stairs. It can be reached on foot along Força street, a pedestrian cobblestone street with a considerable gradient: between 8% and 12%. The Museum of Jewish History is located on number 8 of this street.

These contents have been created by the Economic Promotion Area, Local Development, Tourism and Occupation, Tourism Department, of the City council of Girona, within the territorial cooperation programme POCTEFA 2014-2020 (Programa INTERREG V-A España-Francia-Andorra), created with European funds.
We specially recommend the Girona Tourism for all Guide and the Accessible tourism map.

Free admission for holders of a disability card (one companion will also have free admission when this is indicated on the disability card).

The main entrance is accessible, but somewhat difficult: a ramp and three steps (less than 2 cm high) lead to the ticket office; the exhibition space is accessed via steps that are more than 5 cm high.
Alternative entrance, yet with certain obstacles (a step exceeding 5 cm in height) via a medium-sized lift. Request access to the lift at reception; museum staff will accompany you to the lift and point out the itinerary. This service is subject to staff availability: from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. Outside this schedule, call +34 972 216 761 in advance to check availability.
Interior circulation is mostly obstacle-free, excluding a few obstacles that can be overcome via ramps or several steps (between 2 and 5 cm high) which do not hinder the view. The only area that is not accessible for visitors in wheelchairs is the micvé, a narrow space only accessible via steps that are more than 5 cm high.
The exhibition can be accessed with no difficulties. Please contact reception to ask how to follow it in chronological order when taking the alternative itinerary via the lift.
Most display cases and objects exhibited are placed at a height that makes them visible for visitors in wheelchairs.
