Visitors with a walking aid, mobility scooter or wheelchair
Space Expo is for the most part accessible to visitors using a walking aid, mobility scooter or wheelchair. However, the ramps are steep. Therefore, a visit can be challenging without support/guidance.
The following parts are (partially) inaccessible if you use a walking aid, mobility scooter or wheelchair:
- There are peepholes in the first corridor upon entering. These have various heights.
- The scale model of the ISS is accessible, but the passage is narrow (94 cm) and the turning radius is small.
- The moonjump and Soyuz simulator are not accessible.
- The passage to the treasure room is 85 cm wide.
- The Space Train is unfortunately not accessible, at ESA ESTEC you encounter many high stairs and there are no lifts.
