Refurbishment Toulouse Archeology Museum. From November to December 2021, work was underway, particularly in the reception area. Under the aegis of museum teams, designer Guillaume Lamarque, stakeholders from the town hall and the Directorate of Museums and Monuments, the redevelopments were completed.
On the menu of novelties: more ergonomic furniture suitable for people with disabilities, a bright hall with self-service left-luggage office, new interior signage. But also the installation of an advanced reception point which will act as a skip the line for visitors who bought their entry ticket online.
A staircase suitable for people with visual impairments
From now on, visitors will also be able to discover the new layout of the stairwell since the steps have been sanded in order to be improve visibility for visually impaired people. The temporary exhibition hall and the permanent museum route were also affected by the work.
Thus, on the second floor, the Gallic gold jewelry will now be exhibited in a central showcase. While a new video device assists the Toulousains. This was produced as part of a skills sponsorship and illustrates in 3D a reconstruction of a district of Toulouse in the time of the Visigoths.
