Accessibility in The Craft Museum of Finland
It is easy to come to the Craft Museum of Finland in the heart of Jyväskylä. It's comfortable sized and there's a lot of fun for the whole family. In addition to the permanent exhibitions on the basement, there are many small exhibitions at the same time. We handle handicrafts very widely: exhibitions showcase various handicraft techniques and their talents as well as arts and crafts. You may want to visit the showrooms in advance in a pdf map.
We are part of the EU Disability Card support teams and we want to serve our clients with special needs in the best possible way. We are therefore an official Disability Card Venue. Personal assistants arriving with the Disability Card holder will have access to the museum free of charge. The museum also has a wheelchair that can be borrowed.
Our museum is accessible when assisted
Disabled parking is situated at Kauppakatu 23, in front of the bank.
There is wheelchair access to the museum street level. Other floors can be accessed with wheelchairs suitable for stairlifts. The street level is accessed via the stairway to the first floor. From the first floor you can reach the basement and the second floor with a larger levator. Disabled toilet is located on the street level.
The showrooms do not have hand guides, so the visually impaired are not recommended to take part in exhibitions without an assistant. Guidedogs are welcome in all the premises of our museum. A bowl for a dog can be found in the disabled toilet. All toilets in the museum are gender neutral.
Attention was paid to accessibility in the exhibitions
Lights in the permanent exhibitions on the basement has been reduced to ensure the preservation of objects. In the Craft - A Touch of Life exhibition and Sense Space you can find soundtracks, objects and materials related to handicrafts that are accessible to all senses. You can also explore objects in the main exhibition with magnifying glass. Also some of the changing exhibitions include functional sections.
