In its commitment to universal accessibility, MACBA conducts a continuous review to improve its facilities, as well as its conceptual principles. As for the programmes, it generates a number of activities for bringing people closer to the contents of the Museum and that incorporate resources adapted to the needs of different publics. Understanding diversity as an element of collective experimentation and learning, we aim to make it possible for everyone to enjoy the spaces, activities and aesthetic experiences we have to offer.

Free entrance to the exhibitions (including a companion) on presentation of documentation establishing disability.
