Policies and recommendations for the visit

It is forbidden to touch the artworks unless they are interactive. If this is the case, it will be properly indicated. In the case of outdoor sculptures, it is forbidden to touch them, lean or climb up on them…

Adults accompanied by or accompanying children are responsible for keeping them a sensible distance from the artworks, so that they cannot damage or touch them. It is imperative that you ensure that children are close to the adults accompanying them, and explain to them the importance of not touching the works exhibited. Children are not allowed to run around the museum halls or access the museum alone. In the outdoor area, they are not allowed to climb up on or sit on the outdoor sculptures (risk of falling).

It is forbidden to enter the museum with sharp objects except for crutches or walking sticks. Long umbrellas are not permitted, and must be left in the cloakroom. It is also forbidden to take large backpacks or large packages (30x30cm) into the museum. The cloakroom service is free.

No flash photography or videos may be taken of artworks inside the museum, unless specifically authorised by the museum. Authorised persons must be duly identified. Photographs may be taken on the outdoor terraces for private use (weddings, communions, etc.). In the case of photographs for professional usage, please contact the museum’s External Relations’ Department.

Smoking is strictly forbidden both inside the building and on the terraces accessed from the interior of the building.

Eating and drinking is strictly forbidden inside the building. In this case, no food and/or beverages may be brought through the corridors of the museum.

Accesibility

At Es Baluard, we understand accessibility to be a fundamental right, and the museum is committed to it, involving itself in its constant renovation in accordance with the demands of society.

Barriers can take on diverse forms, and may be classified in two large groups: physical and intellectual. Some of the measures to be taken by cultural institutions in order to overcome them are, in the case of the physical impediments, ramps and lifts and in the case of intellectual obstacles, programmes and posters for different levels and cognitive codes, as well as the use of multimedia.

The museum is 100% adapted to disabled persons with movement difficulties.

For the most part the museum complies with the regulations for accessibility and the removal of architectural barriers in Decree 96/1994. The museum has installed ramps that run from floor 0 to 2, complying with the limits in terms of gradients of 8%.

In addition, two lifts were installed, one running from floor 0 to the direct exit to the central patio, and another, with 3 cabins, providing access from floor 0 to floor 2.

The museum places a wheelchair at the disposal of visitors who require it to facilitate movement around the different spaces.

Guide dogs and assistance dogs are admitted to the entire museum enclosure.

There are adapted washbasins on floor 0 and floor 1 for visitors with disabilities, in accordance with the conditions of current regulations.

Es Baluard carries out inclusive proposals and projects adapted with and for the different collective, working alongside them. In this way we develop proposals committed to the standardisation and active participation of all of society, taking into consideration those who have all types of difficulties in integrating normally into cultural tours and experiences. Personalised and adapted visits are also provided for groups with special difficulties upon request.

Our aim is to guarantee the attention, quality and full integration of diverse publics, until attaining universal accessibility in all areas (architectural, human and content-related).

Note on inclusivity

An inclusive cultural institution is committed to including all of the agents, communities and diverse groups that wish to form part of it. In basic terms, inclusivity involves both intellectual and physical accessibility issues, materialising for example in the attention the museum pays to generating spaces that are habitable and understandable for all kinds of people. On a deeper level, inclusivity is also connected to the objective of working with the museum’s publics, enabling them to participate and at the same time turning them into agents and a force for change of the institution itself. This has deep repercussions on the very composition of the cultural institution, giving rise to changes in departmental structures, policies of representation and temporal and spatial dynamics.

Es Baluard is located in a privileged, historical part of the city of Palma. Its position in the square of Porta de Santa Catalina, at the end of Paseo Mallorca – one of the city’s main arteries – and near the junction with the Paseo Marítimo, makes it an exceptional site in the bay of Palma, with the Gothic cathedral and Bellver castle as landmarks. Its central situation connects it to other relevant infrastructures and the fascinating historic city centre. In addition, its proximity to Avenida Jaume III means the museum is close to the city’s most important shopping street.
