Se ambulatory risulta troppo dotto e appare come un termine di trafila colta puoi sempre optare per un termine più accessibile come:

***passageway***

Andrebbe benissimo ***gallery*** ma nel tuo contesto, trattandosi di una mostra, il testo risulterebbe ambiguo.

agree  Alfredo Tutino: Comunque, anche in italiano "ambulacro" è termine dotto
12 hrs
  -> Grazie Alfredo ! Hai perfettamente ragione, la mia nota è stata aggiunta per scrupolo. Tra di noi ci sono colleghi che non sopportano termini inglesi di derivazione latina anche quando il contesto li richiederebbe ma preferiscono sinonimi più semplici
