A 9 % slope leads up to the main entrance. The Axes in the Libeskind Building have slopes between 2.65 % (to the stairs) and 3.9 % (to the Holocaust Tower). The incline on the sides is 1.5 % maximum.

There is a parking space for visitors in possession of a disabled badge directly in front of the Museum entrance.

The Jewish Museum has two disabled bathrooms: one is situated at the back of the entrance area, the other in the basement of the Libeskind Building.
