The entire La Coupole museum circuit is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
The 3D Planetarium offers several sessions per day, see schedule in the planetarium section. Every session starts with a 15 minutes introduction (solar system simulation, galaxies...) commented live by our team in french, followed by a spectacular show (30 minutes). Every show is available in english with an audio headset.
Visits are audio-guided using infrared headsets, enabling you to go round the tour at your own pace. The commentaries coming through the headsets are fully translated into the visitors’ mother tongue (French, English, Dutch, German); they are easy to use and are also adapted for the hearing-impaired. Each visitor is given a headset at no additional cost.
