District Museum for them. Leon Wyczółkowski is a Museum without barriers. We strive to meet the expectations and requirements of serving guests with disabilities who are welcome at our doorstep. Disabled persons and their guardians, provided the degree of disability requires care, are entitled to a special ticket for PLN 1.

The availability of buildings for people with disabilities and their adaptation to the needs of this social group is associated with the elimination of urban, architectural, technical, communication barriers and mental barriers, which is why we are gradually trying to adapt museum buildings so that they are friendly to all visitors.
