The Musée d'art de Joliette is accessible to visitors with reduced mobility. The building is provided with access ramps and an elevator. The galleries and service areas are adapted for wheelchairs, and an easy chair is also available for visitors.
Museum services can be adapted to accommodate visitors with a visual or intellectual handicap, attention deficit disorder or learning difficulties. The Museum’s guides have the necessary training and experience to provide adapted services for these visitors.
To encourage people to visit the collections, the MAJ has also created the programme One Hour, One Artwork. This travelling lecture series is aimed at helping participants understand the visual arts and the history of art. Designed for a wide audience, the series of eight lectures is ideally suited to primary and secondary schools, libraries, senior citizens’ homes, cultural and educational associations and any other institution or organization in the Lanaudière region that requests it. Lectures may be given in French or English.
