The doors in the house are electronic and extra wide in order to be more accessible.

Tom Tits Experiment intends that everyone is to have the opportunity to investigate, discover and have fun with everything here. We work unceasingly to make Tom Tits Experiment as accessible as possible for people with disabilities. Visitors with certain physical disabilities cannot participate fully in all activities, but we hope that visitors experience accessibility here as high. Most experiments can be performed by people with short reach, and there is much to experience with all of the senses, such as touch, smell and hearing.
