accessibility

The Fries Museum strives to be as accessible as possible to all its visitors. The museum is housed in a modern building and is easily accessible for the disabled. There is a disabled toilet on each floor and plenty of space in the parking garage underneath the museum. People who cannot visit the museum on their own can bring a guide with them free of charge. Guide dogs are also welcome.

All the floors are accessible by elevator. The museum has wheelchairs and small mobility scooters that you can use free of charge. Reserve one via infobalie@friesmuseum.nl.

blind or partially sighted
Guide dogs are allowed in the museum. There is also an audio tour for the permanent exhibition Ferhaal fan Fryslan. You can use your own smartphone to listen to it. Download the audio tour on this page.

hearing impaired or deaf
We can help you to arrange a sign-language interpreter for deaf or hearing-impaired visitors during a guided tour or lecture. Sign-language interpreters are reimbursed by the government and can be requested online. A sign-language interpreter on a guided tour does not need to buy an entrance ticket for the museum. More information about (applying for) sign-language interpreters can be found here.

calamities
The museum has an emergency plan that includes the evacuation of visitors who need extra assistance. In the event of a calamity, you must always contact the security officer on duty.
