THE MUSEUM FOR ALL
Palazzo Grassi, Punta della Dogana and the Teatrino are completely accessible to visitors with motor disabilities thanks to the absence of architectural barriers from the landing stage of boats at San Samuele (Palazzo Grassi and Teatrino) and at Salute (Punta della Dogana). Inside, the buildings offer lifts, access ramps and wheelchairs.
Moreover, together with other museums in the neighbourhood, Punta della Dogana takes part in the project Venice Art for All, that aims at making the area of Dorsoduro accessible by installing ramps on the local bridges.
The guided tours at Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are accessible to visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing: with a week’s notice, it is possible to request a ISL (Italian Sign Language) guide or interpreter, at no extra cost.
The guided tours for families on Saturdays are also accessible to young deaf visitors. A ILS (Italian Sign Language) educator is always present; booking not necessary.
