Tours with Alzheimer's disease
The Centre Pompidou offers cycles of tours suitable for audiences with Alzheimer's disease.
These tours are a special time for exchanging views, socialising and (re)discovering the collection in mediation conditions that encourage each person to express themselves. Lecturers are trained to respond to the needs and specific character of these audiences. Tours are led by the same lecturer throughout the cycle. Each tour at the museum focuses on a corpus of 4 to 5 works chosen by the lecturer from the modern or contemporary collection.
To guarantee the smooth running of these tours, the number of participants is limited to 12 maximum per group (including cameras).
