The APX is extensively equipped with facilities for visitors with limited mobility. A flyer provides an overview of the accessible areas, mobile ramps and toilets. Wheelchairs can be rented at the box office of the Archaeological Park. All paths can easily be negotiated with wheelchairs. Most of the reconstructed Roman homes can also be entered by visitors with limited mobility. In some places, there are steps which can easily be overcome with the aid of mobile ramps. Several toilets have been installed throughout the Park for visitors with limited mobility. Two of the bathrooms will also include nappy-changing bays for adults as from summer 2009. The adventure playground and the new water playground can be used equally with or without a wheelchair.

A special touch gallery has been set up in the Roman Hostel for blind and visually impaired visitors. The gallery can be visited in conjunction with a guided tour for groups. Individual visitors are requested to contact the supervisory staff.

An acoustic guide with information on the background history is available on CD to guide visitors around the Park. Playback units and CDs are available on loan at the box office. A braille map of the Park is also available at the entrance for a small fee. The "Hands-on history" programme is specially designed for blind and visually impaired people. Even original findings can be grasped by the visitors during this programme, which is only available in combination with a fixed tour booking.

For over 15 years, the APX has offered guided tours for people with learning disabilities. Reconstructed Roman buildings offer an ideal opportunity for personal exploration during which many things can be grasped and tried out. The course on "Roman Clothing" is also particularly suitable in this context.
