The Musée de l’Orangerie offers accessibility and comfort throughout its spaces for people with disabilities. The museum provides adapted services for disabled visitors in order to meet everyone's needs.
Visitors with reduced mobility
The Musée de l’Orangerie is entirely accessible to people with reduced mobility thanks to specific arrangements. The auditorium can accommodate three people in wheelchairs.
Wheelchairs for use within the museum are provided on presentation of an identity document. A car drop-off service in the immediate vicinity of the museum is possible on request (the vehicle cannot be parked after drop-off).
Blind or partially-sighted visitors
Audioguides are available free of charge for the visually impaired. They allow visitors to discover a selection of works in the collection through audio description commentaries.
Guide dogs and service dogs are also accepted in the museum collections and exhibitions, as are walking sticks with tips.
The Musée de l’Orangerie, in partnership with the CRTH (Centre Recherche Théâtre Handicap), enables blind and visually impaired visitors to discover its collections and exhibitions through the Image Whisperers. The principle is simple: art students or artists accompany you supplying the information you need to access the works on display.
Information and reservation:
- information and/or reservation required 15 days before the scheduled date of the tour: +33 (0)1 42 74 17 87 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- free admission for the disabled person and carer, with proof of eligibility
- free admission for under 26 year olds (citizens or long-term residents of an EU member state)
Meeting point and access:
The images whisperer will meet you at the agreed time in front of the museum entrance, next to Rodin’s statue Le Baiser [The Kiss]. You will then come into the museum through the Priority Access entrance.

Deaf and hard of hearing visitors
A free French sign language (LSF) application allows visitors to discover twenty of the museum's most emblematic works. The video commentaries are enriched with glossaries that present the key terms in art history, as well as important dates from the period concerned by the collections at the Orangerie.
This application is available at the Musée de l'Orangerie or to download.
Magnetic loops are installed at various points in the museum to help visitors with hearing aids: the Information desk, the cloakroom, the ticket desks, the audioguide desk, the Café, the Bookshop-Giftshop, the auditorium, and the education space.
Visitors with mental and physical disabilities
Adapted group visits led by a tour guide are available.
Group visits can also be organised on request according to the various disabilities. For more information, please consult the page: "Welfare representative".
