Accessing the HIAP studios, office, Gallery Augusta & Project Space by wheelchair is possible but we recommend to be accompanied by a person assisting because the entrance doors are not step-free. The HIAP toilets are not wheelchair-accessible but you can find accessible toilets on five different locations on the island indicated on this map. The closest one to the HIAP Studios is located in the Summer Theatre (building nr 36 on the Suomenlinna visitors’ map).

If you prefer to follow a more accessible route towards the HIAP premises, please check the map indicating more accessible routes on the island here. The map is also available at the Tourist Information Desk in the Jetty Barracks (building nr 2 on the visitors’ map). Please note that no signposts designate the accessible route in the terrain.
