All areas of the Palais de la Porte Dorée are accessible to disabled persons. 

On the corner of place Edouard Renard and rue Armand Rousseau, a ramp offers access to persons with reduced mobility. A level pathway leads from the ramp to an elevator behind the administrative entrance. A map is available at the end of the ramp. 

Due to counter-terrorism measures, access to this ramp is closed: to reach the forecourt please use the interphone at the administrative entrance (on the right when facing the main entrance).


A reserved parking space is available on avenue Armand Rousseau opposite the access ramp in addition to two spaces inside the Palace grounds. If you wish to access the institution’s parking places, please inform us when you book.
