We want you to feel comfortable at the LVR-Industriemuseum Tuchfabrik Müller (Cloth Factory) and to offer you a visit tailored to your requirements. The museum is arranged with hardly any obstacles and provides many options. Please tell the museum staff if you require assistance.
The former Tuchfabrik Müller (Cloth Factory), core of the LVR-Industriemuseum Euskirchen, is almost completely accessible for persons with restricted mobility or wheelchair users despite its listed historical building substance. Steps prevent entrance to the wet dressing shop and the engine house but it is possible to look inside. All floors of the cloth factory are accessible via an appropriately dimensioned passenger lift. As the cloth factory can only be visited as part of a guided tour there is always someone available to offer assistance if required. Disabled parking spaces are available and there is a disabled toilet in the museum building.
For the tour around the cloth factory and the temporary exhibition you can loan folding stools free of charge. When closed, these can serve as a walking and/or standing aid.
The museum outdoor premises and the museum buildings do not have a guide system for blind persons. We therefore recommend that visually impaired and blind persons are accompanied when visiting the museum. Assistance dogs are permitted.
During each guided tour there are many opportunities to feel objects and this together with the noise of the machines and the smell of oil and wool makes the visit a sensual experience all round. The guided tour lasts approx. 75 minutes. Upon request you can book a separate guided tour for a group of visually impaired and blind persons. This guided tour costs 45 € (up to 25 persons) plus the reduced group entrance fee for severely disabled persons of 3.50 €. The programme should be arranged at least two weeks in advance.
