Visitors with reduced or restricted mobility can enter and park in the Cinquantenaire Park. To do so, please report to the barrier at the entrance to the Cinquantenaire Park. You can alight near our entrance on the Esplanade and park on the other side of the Arcade.

Drive under the Arcade and follow the road to the end, where you will find parking spaces on the left. Be sure to clearly display your “Disabled” parking badge behind your windscreen to avoid fines!


Most Museum galleries are wheelchair accessible: they are either situated on the ground floor or accessible by means of an elevator (1919-1945 Gallery; upon request, see below) or an elevator platform (in the 1831-1914 gallery).
The Aviation Hall mezzanine (stairs), the Armour Gallery (stairs) and the section about Napoleon in the arcades (narrow elevator door (70 cm) and flight of stairs) are not wheelchair accessible.
The galleries about the Second World War are accessible via a service elevator. Please notify the main lobby staff upon arrival or call 02/737 78 11 during your visit to ask for assistance by our guards. 

Interior circulation

Easy, with large hallways (a minimum of 120 cm).


Dedicated toilets are available both on the ground floor (access through the hallway leading to the Aviation Hall) and on the upper floor (access through the 14-18 Gallery).


Both the Museum shop and the cafeteria are accessible to people with challenged mobility.

Dogs are not admitted, with the exception of service dogs.
