Services for the Disabled

  • There is a toilet for the disabled at the Voipaala Art Centre, located in the basement of the main building. The building is equipped with a wheelchair lift.
  • The Rapalum exhibition at the Voipaala Art Centre is accessible. The touchable scale model of the area displayed at the exhibition is also suitable for the visually impaired. Similarly, the log reconstruction of the walls of the ancient hill fort situated close to the exhibition space is suitable for the visually impaired.
