The flooring is regular with joints of less than 2 mm (terracotta); the net span of the door is 95 cm; the internal paths are free of architectural barriers and obstacles; there is an internal door between different rooms 83 cm wide; to reach the ageing room there is a 13 m long descent with a slope of less than 8%.
The main entrance from Piazza della Repubblica can be used independently by customers in wheelchairs. The Royal Palace and the exhibition spaces intended for temporary exhibitions (Scuderie Juvarriane and Sale delle Arti dei Piani Alti) allow visitors in wheelchairs to use them easily and independently. The passage from the basement to the first floor is possible through the use of the lift located after room 14. For the exit from the structure it is possible to use the dedicated lift located at the exit of the Chapel of Sant’Uberto on the right or, requiring the help of the custody staff, you can exit directly on Piazza della Repubblica from the Chapel of Sant’Uberto by crossing the small threshold at the entrance. Access to the Gardens by wheelchair users is possible from Viale Carlo Emanuele II and Via Don Sapino through flat, obstacle-free paths with gravel bottoms. The main entrance to the Clock Tower can be reached by crossing the Court of Honour and skirting the Reggia di Diana on the right. For access from via Castellamonte it is necessary to request the intervention of the custody staff for the opening of the gate located on the ramp at the corner with Piazza della Repubblica. The Gardens are partially accessible to visitors in wheelchairs: at present the Gran Parterre Juvarriano and the Giardino delle Sculture Fluide are accessible with the possibility of using electric scooters available to the public with motor difficulties and fatigue problems. Work is currently underway to arrange the external routes and improve accesses.
The access to the museum has a threshold in addition to an internal flight of stairs, approached by handrails, to go down to the reception floor, where you will find the ticket office, refreshment services and the meeting space for guided tours. However, the reception desk is too high to allow for easy use by people with reduced mobility, and there are accessible toilets near the ticket office. Wheelchair users are allowed access via a secondary access. The dedicated path winds through the courtyard, usually closed, from which you can reach one of the two elevators that allow you to reach all the floors of the building. The elevators can only be used by groups or individuals with specific needs, replacing the stairs always flanked by handrails, in the presence of the personnel in charge of the service. The visit path of the floor dedicated to the Archaeology of cinema is wide enough for the movement of wheelchairs and has seats evenly distributed, in addition to those functional to the exhibition; these have a reclining seat to allow the vision of the equipment that propose the first systems of reproduction of images and animations and are equipped with eyepieces that can be oriented to the visitor’s needs. The showcases and interactive activities are partly accessible and usable by everyone because they are placed in showcases that do not have a hollow space below the exhibition floor for easy access. The floor of the “Temple Hall” is accessible throughout the large central vaulted space, from where you can enjoy the projection of film sequences cyclically re-proposed, while the 10 side “chapels” are largely inaccessible because they have steps flanked by handrails or reduced spaces to allow the movement of wheelchairs, except one near the second lift.
Presence of gravel in the courtyard, but possibility of approaching the front door by bus. Access to the cellar through a concrete ramp. Large spaces inside the cellar for guided tours and tastings in the same rooms thanks to the setting up of tables that can be used by wheelchair users. Spacious toilets, but without supports for vase transfer.
Regular flooring and ample space for mobility both indoors and outdoors. For access to the wine shop there is a door that can be up to 2 metres wide. For access to the distillery floor there are large lifts that can accommodate 4-5 wheelchairs at the same time. Alternatively, it can be accessed from a rear entrance that is usually used to welcome groups. There is a vertical slit of 0.5 cm and a step of 15 cm for the access to the toilets, wide but without supports.
The museum is fully accessible to guests in wheelchairs, as it is free of architectural barriers. It is also equipped with elevators and lifts that can be used to move between one floor and another of the rooms.
