At KMSKA, accessibility and inclusiveness are a mission. New lifts ensure optimal accessibility to all floors and halls. The KMSKA app shows you the way to those lifts. Many paintings hang lower so wheelchair users suffer less reflection. Tired easily? With a museum chair you can rest wherever you want. So the KMSKA is there for everyone. Read more below.
