The Gallerie dell’Accademia is accessible to mobility-impaired persons via the barrier-free entrance located at the right-hand side of the museum. The premises are equipped with lifts to access the first floor and lifting platforms between halls. Due to ongoing renovation work, at present the first floor is partly inaccessible. However, visitors can use the lift to reach halls XIX, XX, XXI, XXII, and XXIII.

We are committed to further improving accessibility and usability and plan to make the entire premises fully and freely accessible to all.

If you are a person with a motor disability, please talk to our staff, and we will be happy to suggest the best way to get around the exhibition halls.



The third phase of the project has begun on Monday, 10 October 2022 and end on Sunday, 27 August 2023 and will affect rooms XVIII, XIX, XX, XXI, XXIII, therefore currently closed to the public.

The museum tour starts from Hall I on the first floor to the Loggia palladiana, after Hall XV it continues down to the ground floor and resumes the tour from Hall 13.
