The LWL-Industriemuseum has set out to make its buildings and offers accessible to all people - with or without disabilities. The measures range from improving the infrastructure to educational offers such as inclusive guided tours.

Achieving barrier-free access is very important to the LWL-Industriemuseum Henrichshütte Hattingen, but is often difficult and, above all, only gradually to be implemented in an approx. 50.000 square meter former blast furnace from the 20th century, which is a listed building. A unique, listed location like the Henrichshütte needs individual solutions.

The museum has its own parking lot opposite the entrance with over 180 parking spaces for cars. There are six signposted parking spaces for people with disabilities, 25 meters from the entrance.
Wheelchair-accessible sanitary facilities for people with disabilities are located on the ground floor of the "Gebläsehalle" and in the Museum Foyer Container. The door is opened on its own.
