The public barrier-free car park in Kalchberggasse can be used for parking.

The ground-level and barrier-free entrance to the Joanneum Quarter is to the left of the OHO! café-bar-restaurant on the western side of the square. From there, an automatic door leads to the lift. The door is particularly suitable for wheelchair users or people with prams.

The lift takes you to the basement. There you will find the visitor centre with the ticket office and the starting point for tours.

Barrier-free WCs are also available in the Visitor Centre. There is an induction system for deaf people.

The CoSA - Centre of Science Activities is located on the first floor of the Natural History Museum, while the permanent exhibition and special exhibitions of the museum can be seen on the second floor - alone or as part of a guided tour or workshop.

Special guided tours are available for blind people on request; selected objects can also be touched with gloves.

For people who often need a seat, easily portable chairs are available. These can be placed anywhere.

The café can also be reached barrier-free from the courtyard side (!). A step leads into the café from the square side. A barrier-free restroom is available.
