The sidewalk in front of the main entrance is connected to the street level. The short path to the museum entrance is in bad condition. Moreover, one needs to use a rather steep ramp to overcome the four steps at the entrance of the museum. The toilet for the disabled is at the entrance of the museum.
The museum offers a tactile path for people with visual disabilities: it is in the mammal fossils gallery. A specific file can be requested at the entrance to make easier finding the touchable objects, reading the explanations in Braille/ high readability letters.
