Wheelchair Access
Nikolaj Kunsthal endeavours to make all our exhibitions accessible for wheelchair users. Due to our changing exhibitions, which are often on a large scale and in challenging formats, we cannot always guarantee full access. There is no wheelchair access to the upper gallery, but the ground floor is fully accessible and has 2 disabled toilets.
