Specific audiences

The museums aim to make the collections accessible to all visitors. As a result, visits adapted to audiences with specific needs have been developed.

In 2017, the Grand Curtius renewed its adherence to the Acces-i label

People with reduced mobility
The Grand Curtius is fully adapted for people with reduced mobility, thanks to the presence of lifts, access ramps and disabled parking spaces nearby. The museum also has wheelchairs and stick seats available for visitors, as well as accessible toilets.

People with visual impairments
The museums' Entertainment Department offers visually-impaired visitors an adapted museum itinerary.  An audio-description presentation of the museum with tactile elements allows groups to discover the collections.

People with intellectual disabilities
Visits adapted to people with intellectual disabilities have been developed in collaboration with two associations, Inclusion and Mouvement Personne D’abord. These visits are adapted to different needs.

People with auditory disabilities
Guided visits are available, accompanied by a guide who is trained to work with the hearing impaired. A sign language interpreter from the Service d’Interprétation des Sourds en Wallonie (SiSW) accompanies the group throughout the visit and interprets the commentary. Please note: the price may vary depending on the conditions of the SiSW. Tablets with videos dubbed in sign language are also available.

Newcomers
The museums' Entertainment Department offers special visits for first-time visitors.

These visits are based on the discovery of our heritage and the acquisition of a new vocabulary.

People in social and/or economic difficulty
Guided visits for groups of people in social and/or economic difficulty focus on the notion of cultural democracy by creating a link between culture, aestheticism and the citizen.

Support the museum

Support the Grand Curtius and les Musées de Liège

Les Musées de Liège
The not-for-profit association “Les Musées de Liège” was created in 1992, on the initiative of the city of Liège, with a view to “contributing to the growth of the Liège museums' collections, awareness of their existence and their value”. With this in mind, the not-for-profit association may, based on its social aims, “seek, by any financial means, the resources necessary to preserve, expand and conserve the works of the museums in the city of Liège”.

The not-for-profit association selects and plans its activities by organising major exhibitions in the city’s museums.

Fondation Liège Patrimoine
The public interest foundation “LIEGE PATRIMOINE”, which is chaired by Serge Mantovani, is a significant cultural tool. Its objectives are to promote the archaeological, artistic and historic heritage of institutions associated with it (Institut Archéologique Liégeois, Musée d’Art religieux et d’Art mosan, Le Vieux- Liège, les Amis du Musée d’Armes de Liège, les Amis du Musée d’Art religieux et d’Art Mosan, les Amis des Musées de l’Institut Archéologique Liégeois, les Musées de Liège) and to collaborate in crafting high-level museum policy.

Capable of receiving donations and contributions, the foundation regularly receives works of art and objects, which become part of the city of Liège’s museum collections after they have been examined by the scientific committee. The Ardent City has the largest and most interesting movable cultural capital in Wallonia.

As part of its desire to enhance culture and promote Liège heritage, the foundation provides meeting rooms and logistic activities for several associations.

“LIEGE PATRIMOINE” is attentive to, and at the service of, all those who have a passion for movable and immovable heritage and Liège.

Amis du Musée d’Art religieux et d’Art Mosan, not-for-profit association
The history of Liège, which was ruled for seven centuries by prince-bishops, was rich in artistic creations inspired by religion. The Musée d’Art religieux et d’Art mosan displays beautiful examples of this. The Les Amis du MARAM not-for-profit association, created in 1980, has notably contributed to the substantial enrichment of the museum’s collections. Given the closure of an increasing number of churches, chapels and communities, the association aims to strengthen its action and encourage gifts, donations, etc., which will help to preserve this hugely valuable religious heritage.
