Galerie des Enfants (Children’s Gallery)

Practical information

All exhibits (videos, multimedia) incorporating spoken language have French Sign Language and text subtitles.

Please note:

  • the film on night-time in the city plays on a continuous loop in three versions (relatively short) and only one of the three versions has French and French Sign Language subtitles.
  • exhibits accessible in French Sign Language and with text subtitles: choose the button with the “hands” symbol.

Please note:

  • the Galerie des Enfants is relatively noisy during busy periods, which can be problematic for visitors with hearing aids.
  • the Galerie des Enfants does not have an induction loop amplifier since the building’s metal structure prevents it from working properly.

Activities

The permanent presence of a mediator

A mediator trained in disability awareness is permanently present in the Galerie des Enfants. He or she can briefly explain the exhibition and themes addressed, answer any questions you or the children may have, and, if need be, show them how to use specific exhibits. The mediator is not familiar with French Sign Language but please let him or her know if there is an alternative form of communication you could use (writing on a notepad, lip reading, etc.).

Free admission for visitors with disabilities on self-guided tours (without a guide) (without a guide), as well as for their carer, upon presentation of appropriate ID (disability or priority card). Any additional carers must purchase a ticket at the applicable price.
