Visually impaired

The museum staff has been trained to receive partially sighted and blind visitors.

Independent tours
For individual visitors who want to tour independently, a guidebook in large characters is available at museum reception, also including a list of the works that can be touched for partially sighted and blind visitors. Members of staff in the rooms of the museum can indicate the location of the works that can be touched and help with their investigation.

Discovery  via description, listening to audio extracts, touching original works and retouched 3-D images allow different themes to be investigated: "Literary portrait and self-portrait", "Victor Hugo’s intimate life", "The women in Victor Hugo’s life and works", "Victor Hugo, furniture designer".
