WHAT TO DO WITH A BIKE OR A PRAM?
Prams and pushchairs as well as smaller bikes can be lifted into the Museum’s vestibule. It is not possible to move around the Museum with pushchairs and prams. We ask you to kindly park larger bikes either in the courtyard of Lutsu 2 (please ask the service staff) or at the bike holder at the corner of Lutsu Street and Jakobi Street.
|Wheelchair access is available to both Museum itself (Lutsu 8) and the Theatre House theatre hall (Lutsu 2). However, it is not possible to enter the Theatre House basement by wheelchair. In order to move around the Lutsu 8 exhibition house, it is necessary for someone to accompany the person in the wheelchair, as the building has different levels, which can be difficult to enter alone.
