Appreciation for the Universal Access Plan by Ms. Celine Fremault, Minister in Charge of helping people with disabilities, Brussels

The City Palace Museum is always working towards the Universal Access Plan in order to make tourism accessible to all visitors, including the differently abled and senior citizens. The plan is to facilitate easy access through the museum's narrow corridors, small gates and pathways which were previously not designed for a modern museum. The museum has also been equipped with ramps, lifts and audio-visual rooms. This shall bring a positive change in terms of tourism especially for differently abled and senior citizens who earlier found it inconvenient to visit the Palace.

MMCF received a letter of appreciation and thank you letter from Ms. Celine Fremault, Minister in Charge of helping people with disabilities, Brussels for the support and help from the foundation on their visit with a group of 14 persons, of which 6 people on wheelchair and 8 belgian helpers led by group leader Ms. Anne Spilliaert from Decalage Asbl on 14th November 2018.
