As part of its commitment to accessibility, the Museo de Arte Moderno is committed to offering an inclusive experience. The museum aims to provide a quality service to the public based on the principal of universal design and through an educational program that includes activities designed for people with disabilities, as well as a wide variety of integrated activities that seek to promote participation, the exercise of citizenship and access to culture, thus enhancing the capabilities of all people.
The Ministry of Tourism and Sports has certified the compliance of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires with their Accessibility Guidelines, which represents an important recognition of our efforts to eliminate all barriers so that all of our visitors can enjoy the experience of visiting the galleries.
This distinction is a recognition of the work we have been undertaking since 2017 to expand the museum’s accessibility, which has led to the institution becoming a leader in guaranteeing the right of people with disabilities to fully participate in artistic experiences.
