Our goal is that everyone shall have the same opportunity to experience the Tycho Brahe museum.
This page gives information on ground surface, the width of paths, gates etc.
The entry to the museum is located in a small building on Landsvägen. The entrance doors are made of glass, which make entry for visitors using a wheelchair or walker easy.
There are three options for entry to and exit from the museum grounds:
A ramp leading in to the exhibition is only accessible from one side, the church entrance. The width of the ramp is only 220 cm. NB! Do not use the gravel path to the right of the church building as the singel is loose here.
When entering the armory, the room just inside the church gate, it is relatively dark here. This is due to an exhibition with light effects being shown in this room. There are, however open areas, so it is still possible to get around well with a wheelchair, walker or similar.
The door between the coat of arms and the church room is a double door that is opened manually. The doors can be set up with a manual door holder at the bottom. NB: standing outside the building, the church gate opens from you, while the door between the coat of arms and the church room opens towards you.
In the playground you can try fourteen different ways to play in 16th century. The substrate consists of either sand or grass. The sand parts can be difficult to reach with a wheelchair or a walker.
The cellar at the servants’ quarters is accessed via a set of stone steps with a 16th century arch and a partially-conserved brick floor. Opening of arch 123 cm / 48 in.; total floor-to-ceiling height approx. 200–245 cm / 79–96 in. There are 11 natural stone steps. The cellar is very difficult to access. E-readers available at the Observatory can provide pictures and information.
Tycho Brahe’s castle and castle grounds are surrounded by banks. Two of these have been restored; one of them works as a viewpoint and can be reached via a wide staircase of 10–13 steps and a pathway with handrails along the bank. Accessible only by steps.
Ivar Johnsson’s granite statue of Tycho Brahe was erected in 1946, long before the plans for reconstruction of the garden. Therefore, the statue has ended up in the middle of the gravel passage, which makes it difficult to pass it. Pay attention to the ditch between the gravel path and the lawn.
The garden consists of two parts, a reconstructed environment and an experimental cultivation. The reconstructed garden is fenced. The gate is 75 cm/30 inches wide and the walkways are between 60 and 85 cm/ 24 and 33 inches wide. The walkways are packed with gravel and seashells.
The fruit grove is a meadowland planted with trees. A 120 cm/47 in gravel path leads up to the gazebo and Urania Titani – the sensual gazebo exhibition. The entrance to the gazebo is 70 cm/28 in. wide; the floor is a thick layer of sea sand.
The path leading to Gazebo no. 2 is approx. 60–75 cm / 24–30 in. wide. The path alongside the display boards is edged with a ring of cobblestones. The entrance to the gazebo is 80 cm / 31 in. wide. The inside of the gazebo is paved. Note the hollow between the paving stones and the larger stone in the middle of the floor. The exhibition is printed on the glass walls at a height of 110 cm / 43 in.
The castle grounds comprise an open area of gravel and an area marked out with Swedish whitebeam hedges. This is where Tycho Brahe’s castle once stood with its inner and outer walls and towers. The hedges mark the position of the walls and the area is surfaced with loose, crushed brick. The inner and outer entrances are the same width: 150 cm / 59 in. The outer hedge has a path that is 180 cm / 71 in. wide and there are two entrances leading from it. Both entrances are 160 cm / 63 in. wide.
This exhibition is located on a raised wooden floor, about 20 cm / 8 in. above the floor with no ramp. Signage is at a height of 80 cm / 31 in.
Stjärneborg consists of a number of domed roofs above ground, the main attraction being the underground remains dating from 1584. The entrance to Stjärneborg is 80 x 200 cm / 31 x 79 in. and connects to a set of 10 steps. Note that the door has a 5 cm / 2 in. step. The roof is angled, and at the point where the steps finish the floor-to-ceiling height is 160–175 cm / 63–69 in. Both the steps and the floor area have handrails on both sides. Visitors unable to access the underground section of Stjärneborg can use the museum’s e-readers to view the interior and experience the exhibition from above ground in digital form. E-readers and headphones are available for loan from museum staff at the observatory.
The café is located adjacent to the museum. The café entrance door is 81 cm / 32 in. wide and has a 4.5 cm / 1.75 in. step. The first door-free opening in the café building is 94 cm / 37 in. wide. The café also has three door-free openings that are each 80 cm / 31 in. wide. The café also has an outdoor serving area and an orangery with seating. The door to the orangery is 127 cm / 50 in. wide with a 4 cm / 1.5 in. step, and the floor is concrete. There is plenty of space in the orangery and outdoor serving area. The outdoor serving area has a gravel surface.
All toilets are outside the museum grounds, opposite the entrance. The area is gravelled but manageable for bicycles, bike trailers, wheelchairs and walking frames. Both WCs and accessible toilets are available.
