All the information has been gathered from the websites of the actual resources, websites of associations and from specialist portals and directories, it may therefore be subject to change and to different interpretations. It is therefore advisable to contact the person in charge beforehand, in order to clarify any doubts and check that the accessibility conditions are still the same.

Museums and cultural facilities in Navarre with cognitive accessibility

  • Retrato del Marqués de San Adrián de Goya

    Museum of Navarre, in Pamplona

    In the section hand leaflets on the Museum of Navarre website, you can find 3 leaflets in easy-to-read format, which will help you to clearly understand part of the exhibits in this museum.

    The 3 leaflets are:

  • Pintura del museo de Gustavo de Maeztu

    Gustavo de Maeztu Museum

    One of the aims of this museum is to help promote social cohesion through culture. To do so, guided tours and activities adapted to the needs of each group are organised. The intention is thus to turn the picture gallery into an open space that promotes all-inclusiveness. Its website also indicates that this also covers the needs of persons with an intellectual or developmental disability.

  • Vitrinas expositivas con objetos de la antigüedad

    Museum of Tudela

    The website of the Museum of Tudela offers a virtual tour on this link allowing you to take a look around the museum. In the different rooms, you will find Easy-to-Read pictograms and expanded information that open descriptive documentation of the exhibition.

  • Tinaja en primer plano y parte del recorrido del yacimiento

    Las Eretas Archaeological Site and Museum

    For a long time now, Las Eretas Archaeological Site and Museum has been working on making the area accessible to everyone. Cognitive accessibility has been achieved by adapting leaflets with information on the museum to an Easy-to-Read format:

    In addition, each display panel has a QR code that downloads the information in Easy-to-Read format, in Spanish and Basque.

  • Grupo de personas con discapacidad cognitiva en el centro Ultreia

    Ultreia - Way of St James Interpretation and Pilgrim Reception Centre

    The Ultreia Centre has a NaviLens marker on the door, making it possible to access Easy-to-Read information.
