Getting around inside Place des Arts

Borrowing a wheelchair

If you need a wheelchair to facilitate your moving around inside Place des Arts, visit the central security station near the rue Saint-Urbain entrance, or the entrance to Maison symphonique if you are attending a show there.

Please note we have a limited number of wheelchairs and that the rental is only to get to your seat. It will not be possible to remain in the wheelchair during the show.

Mobility assistance inside the venues

During show times, a customer service representative is specially assigned to assisting people with reduced mobility. To obtain assistance, simply come to the show venue entrance.

For people of larger sizes

People of larger sizes can be seated more comfortably by reserving an adapted seat. All our show venues are equipped with them, and you can reserve one through the Place des Arts box office, by telephone or at the wicket only; it is not possible to reserve this type of seat online. You can also make a request when you arrive at the venue the day of the , though availability is not guaranteed. Please note that we have a limited number of these seats.

Guide dogs

Certified guide dogs are welcome on site. When you purchase your tickets, contact the Place des Arts box office to make sure you are given appropriate seating in the venue.
