Reduced mobility

The museum is located in the historic centre of Porto, in an old building adapted to display the company’s collection to the public.

Floor 0 of the museum is fully accessible to people with reduced mobility, with ramps and areas suitable for wheelchair users.

Floor -1, accessible only by stairs, can also be enjoyed through the virtual tour, available in a room specifically for this purpose, where there is also a replica of one of the exhibition areas of floor -1, the construction area. Here, visitors have access to various objects (moulds, prototypes, photographs, etc.) that translate in a simple way the process and materials used in the construction of puppets and props.

Deaf and hearing impaired

There are also video-guides available on several touch screens placed in strategic points of the museum in Portuguese Sign Language, Portuguese and English. These video-guides allow visitors to better enjoy the exhibited elements.
