Bandeau La Vache Qui Rit

Impaired visitors

In order to provide a cultural offer to as many people as possible, it is important to consider the diversity and specific needs of all audiences. Thus, La Maison de la Vache qui rit offers a museographic tour and workshops adapted to facilitate access and visits for people with disabilities.

A reception labelled by the Tourism and Disability Association (for motor, hearing, visual and intellectual disabilities).

Dogs accompanying people with disabilities, whatever the type of disability – motor, sensory or mental – and whose owners can prove that the animal has been trained are of course welcome.
