Parking in Ribe
Wheelchair access

It is possible to drive into Sortebrødregade from its southern end and stop by the entry to the museum, but the closest parking is more than 200 metres away.

The museum is housed on the first and second floors of old, listed buildings. Unfortunately, this makes wheelchair access difficult.Owing to the limited access, wheelchair users are admitted free of charge.

A small lift has been installed in the building. This provides some wheelchair users with access to the greater part of the first floor. NB! The lift is too small for some wheelchairs. The lift measures 111 x 104 cm. We accept companion cards.

We regret that not everyone will be able to visit Jacob A. Riis Museum.
