Lascaux II: At present the Lascaux II site is not accessible to wheelchairs due to the stairway (to reach the cave) and an extremely narrow passage inside the cave.
Le Thot: In a few weeks, access to wheelchairs will be possible in the museum space at Le Thot (work in progress). However, access to the animal park and some workshops is not adapted to wheelchairs due to the steep incline and dirt paths. Upon completion of the works, the bathrooms will also be adapted.

Our educational teams are trained for working with persons with mental or psychological impairments. They are there to provide special guidance and accompaniment.

Le Thot: In a few weeks our site will have a hearing assistance tool (sound amplification and transmission), available at the welcome desk. To date, however, audio information is not subtitled or presented in writing.

 

Deficients-visuels-CMJN_medium

 

Lascaux II: The visit places the visitor in an environment close to the original cave (dark space, underground milieu). There is not a great deal of visual contrast: we recommend therefore that visually impaired persons be accompanied.
Le Thot: Works (floor markings for common areas) are in progress to allow visually impaired persons to safely access the museum. To date, no documents are presented in large print or Braille.
