Programmes adapted to visitors with various disabilities. Special tours of the Centre Pompidou collections, exhibitions and museum building are organised on a monthly basis (except during the summer period) in the company of a lecturer trained in the appropriate oral mediation.
Through comments and detailed descriptions, the lecturer enables visitors to get a picture of the works, shedding light on the artist’s approach.
Trained in the techniques of communication with the hard of hearing, the lecturer takes these visitors on a discovery of an exhibition or the collections. Hearing aids equipped with induction loop collars or earphones are available.
