Information for people with restricted mobility

The Röntgen Museum is barrier-free. All exhibition rooms are accessible for wheelchair users; the floors are connected via lift/elevator, and a ramp connects the basement with the old villa. Our receptionists will be happy to provide any assistance you might require.

Toilets for wheelchair users are situated on the ground floor behind the museum shop.

Portable folding stools are available at the entrance desk for anyone who would prefer to sit while viewing the exhibits.

The German Röntgen Museum is also one of the few museums in Germany, providing for its permanent exhibition, a video guide in German sign language. This is made possible by new portable multimedia devices by acoustiguide on which the videos can be played and viewed. In line with the existing audio tour, the acoustic information was translated into sign language.

Deaf visitors can now obtain specially prepared video information on currently 24 exhibition units.

In addition to this new program for deaf visitors a new audio guide in "plain language" especially for visitors with learning disabilities is available.

The aim of the city of Remscheid is to open the German Roentgen Museum in the framework of the UN Convention on the involvement and participation of people with disabilities. Gradually, the existing barrier-free will be extended and improved
