Accessibility at the Malta National Aquarium

Safe and reliable mobility is one of our primary challenges “Access for All” is a design philosophy that envisions a built environment designed with the specific and changing needs of all its inhabitants in mind, irrespective of their age, status and physical capabilities. This is especially the case for children, people with disabilities and the elderly, whose freedom of movement may be considerably restricted. For them “Access for All” means having immediate surroundings that are secure, aesthetically pleasing and stimulating to the senses, with essential amenities and facilities close by.
