Ainola’s ticket sale and cafe building is located about 40 metres right from the entrance gate. The building is accessible. The entrance to the building is located on an outdoor corridor, at the end of an sand road leading to the building. The door leading to the ticket sale and cafe is in the middle of the corridor, on the left side, in a small niche. The accessible toilet with a childcare area, is located immediately on the right, when stepping into the corridor. The cafe includes two more public toilets.
The museum building is about 150 metres away from the ticket sale building. From the cafe building, there is about 40 metre walk towards the gate area, from where one should turn right and continue travelling up a hill. From the gate this same path goes straight up the hill. The slope is rather steep, and includes an extension with a bench halfway through the hill on the left side. The porch of the museum building has a wheelchair lift. Our staff will assist you with the lift. The museum has thresholds and narrow doorways, but visits with both rollators and wheelchairs are possible. The museum offers audio description tours, as well as, guided tours in plain language.
The paths in the garden are only partially accessible, for example, in order to get to the grave, we recommend taking the lower route which travels through the garden, past the sauna building, to the grave. When coming from the cafe building, there is immediately a turn to the right, from where a narrower sand path will lead to the grave through the garden.
Ainola’s forest includes a one meter wide sand path. The path begins from a slope below Jean and Aino Sibelius’ grave. It will lead back to the accessible road that leads from the house to the gate. We cannot guarantee the accessibility of this forest path, because it includes some steeper slopes, and its surface may become softer after rain.
We will gladly assist if help is needed!
