Visitors with disabilities

The museum is completely accessible to visitors with limited motor skills. There is a wheelchair ramp entrance along Lungarno Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici number 2. You will need to request assistance to our staff via an intercom system. Two elevators and two wheelchair lifts assure access to the floors for wheelchairs (up to 325 kg). If needed, a standard manual wheelchair can be loaned out during your visit for free.
All floors within Palazzo Castellani have handicapped accessible restrooms.
Assistance dogs are able to access the museum.
All visitors with disabilities and one companion are granted free entrance to the Museo Galileo.


Visits for the visually impaired
A museum operator introduces the objects on display and illustrates their role in the history of science. The tactile exploration of a selection of originals and replicas helps visually impaired visitors to better understand how the instruments are made and work. Thanks to the museum’s collaborative efforts with the Italian Union of the Blind this service is free of charge and available in either English or Italian.
