visitors using wheelchairs, only the ground floor is accessible. The toilets
located on the basement level are not wheelchair accessible.
For the blind and visually impaired, a special tour of the museum’s collections of Gallo-Roman and medieval sculpture is offered, accompanied by an audioguide. A sculpted copy of the Isenheim Altarpiece created by the workshop of Jean-Jacques Erny in Colmar is presented in the same room as this monumental work of art. It is smaller in scale than the original so as to be more easily apprehended by the blind and visually impaired: it provides a distinctive perspective on the Altarpiece, different from that experienced by sighted visitors. Currently, a replica of the Crucifixion is exhibited in this manner.
An audioguide accompanies the
tactile exploration of this replica’s lindenwood panels (which are thus made of
the same material as the original work’s painted panels). Replicas of the
Altarpiece’s other panels will soon be displayed in the museum, offering this
category of visitors the opportunity to explore Grünewald and Niclaus of
Haguenau’s masterpiece in its entirety.
