In the changing world of museums, accessibility is just one ball you have to juggle. Let us help you prioritise based on our offerings and your needs.
- Floor plans Knowing how an exhibit is laid out gives vision-impaired patrons a deeper sense of the thought you put into crafting your permanent and traveling programs. Museum maps can be incorporated into other braille exhibit information to enrich a visitor’s museum experience;
- informational material Many people have smart phones and computers, but there’s usually a display of rack cards, brochures and posters for those passing through your doors. Consider making that information available in braille. It says We are a welcoming, inclusive space better than many a PR campaign;
- Tactile versions of visual art It is not always possible to touch art, let alone specimens of wallpaper or elaborate tapestries, so why not have a selection of paper copies with tactile images and braille labels for your patrons to examine close up? It will avoid damage to valuable pieces whilst giving visitors with a vision impairment and everyone else, too, an immediate, multi-sensory discovery point to the show;
- Panel information There are many ways to access exhibit information, and we can help you problem-solve booklets or braille panels, so that vision-impaired visitors can read along with their fully-sighted friends or family members.
