Accessibility of Galeria Labirynt

The programme events of Galeria Labirynt situated at Popiełuszki 5 Street take place on the ground floor. Texts describing the works are printed in black and white. The exhibitions are designed in such a way that wheelchairs can pass freely between the walls. A wheelchair and earmuffs can be borrowed from the bookshop for the duration of your stay in the gallery. Assistance dogs are welcome in the gallery (as are other animals); there is also a bowl of water for them located in the bookshop. All the wooden doors in the institution are painted grey, which contrasts with the white walls of the building.

 

You can get to the gallery by using the public transport of the Public Transport Authority. According to the carrier, lines reaching the vicinity of the building at Popiełuszki 5 Street are serviced by low-floor vehicles (bus stop lines 4, 11, 13, 15, 55 in their entirety, line 2 on Saturdays and Sundays).

It is possible to get to the Gallery from the three nearest bus stops: Galeria Labirynt 01, Galeria Labirynt 02 and Głowackiego 01. There are safe crossings from the Galeria Labirynt 01 and Galeria Labirynt 02 bus stops with light and sound signals and also lowered kerbs. The path from the Głowackiego 01 bus stop leads through one pedestrian crossing with light and sound signals and one crossing without signals. The path from this bus stop leads also through the pavement, which is damaged in some places, so it can be difficult to move on a wheelchair.

We can provide an assistant to come to the bus stop and support the person to get to the Gallery. If you need an assistant, please call in advance at +48 81 466 59 20 int. 23.

It is possible to drive up to the Gallery building from Popiełuszki Street. There is a parking space next to the building, marked with a blue envelope measuring 360 cm (depth) by 620 cm (length).

It is also possible to drive up and stop at the very entrance of the Gallery to drop off visitors to the institution.
