ACCESIBILITY NOTICE: https://hevelianum.pl/dostepnosc/
If you are visually-impaired, make sure to visit Hevelianum with an accompanying
person. Otherwise, you may experience difficulty reaching and navigating the
building and experiencing what it has to offer. The turnstiles, for example, make it
difficult to enter and exit the exhibition areas independently.
Make sure to visit the Hevelianum Without Barriers exhibition, which includes tactile
bronze dioramas of the Hevelianum area, a panoramic view of Gdansk and a portrait
of Johannes Hevelius.
You may enter the exhibition areas with an assistance or guide dog.
If you are a person with hearing impairment, before you visit Hevelianum, be advised
that the institution offers few amenities for the hearing impaired, and does not employ
a Polish Sign Language interpreter. The staff do not use this language either. Exhibit
descriptions and multimedia materials are in Polish and do not feature Polish Sign
Language translations, which makes them inaccessible for deaf visitors.
Also worth visiting is the Hevelianum Without Barriers exhibition, which contains
videos with subtitles and exhibits with fully textual descriptions.
If you are a person with motor impairment (such as an electric or manual wheelchair
or crutch user), visit Hevelianum with an accompanying person. Reaching (even from
the car park) and exploring the building may be tiring. This applies to the exterior
(cobblestones) and interior (no guide arrows in exhibition areas, narrow
passageways, small elevator and toilets). You will be unable to experience the entire
offering due to certain exhibitions being inaccessible using the elevator and because

happy being able to touch and experience everything, with nobody telling him no.
All personnel is trained to interact with autistic children.
