Accessible Museum Exhibits

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Description

Applying the requirements of the Department of Justice requirements for effective communication and the design and construction standards of the ADA and to museum exhibits can present some unique challenges. Some examples include following the protruding objects provisions for stand-alone exhibits or ensuring that exhibits are accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired. In addition to a review of the standards applying to exhibits, a lead media accessibility coordinator from the National Park Service, Harpers Ferry Center, will provide examples of how they have improved the accessibility of exhibits for all visitors with disabilities.
