The Marine Protected Area of Miramare’s immersive museum, the Marine Biodiversity Centre (BioMa), is located at the entrance to the historic Park, in the right wing of Miramare Castle Stables, on the ground and first floor Direct access to the Stables for people with motor disabilities or with difficulty walking is guar- anteed by the availability of parking located close to the building and by the presence of an access ramp leading to the entrance of the Marine Biodiversity Centre.
Throughout the whole museum, wheelchair users are able to move about and use the interac- tive stations autonomously. A platform stair lift connects the ground floor to the second floor. The ground floor is equipped with an accessible toilet with grab bars and a changing table.

For students with motor disabilities, in addition to the museum itinerary, the educational labor- atory on the ground floor, the projection room on the first floor and the BioMa (the REEF), which is an equipped room outside, are all accessible. 

For visitors to BioMa with visual impairments, audio guides in Italian and English are available free of charge, which tell the whole immersive journey among the habitats of the Gulf of Tri- este and of the relationship between man and the sea.

A number of multisensory installations enable you to listen to the sounds of the marine envi- ronment and, in the presence of WWF staff, to touch some species of invertebrates inside a tactile tank, making the guided tour suitable for people with low vision or cognitive disabilities as well.
