Barrier-free visiting

Discover the Technisches Museum Wien!


Making exhibitions accessible even for people with special needs matters a lot to the Technisches Museum Wien and its employees.

Special guided tours

In order to be able to offer a suitable guided tour, we recommend first having an informative discussion with the 'Knowledge Transfer' department. In this way, we can produce a tailor-made program for the group and take various forms of disability into account.

For blind and sight-impaired persons
In separate guided tours with special support, certain exhibits can be "grasped", thus conveying their shape, surface design and size.

The employees at the booking centre are happy to answer any questions:
