Information about how museum visits can be inclusive. For visually impaired visitors, the items displayed need to be ‘audio described’. If possible, some models can be available for visitors to hold and feel. Some museums allow small groups (2 or 3) to put on fine latex gloves and hold original pieces.
- Inclusion at the Anatolian Civilisations Museum, Ankara (2004). The report was prepared before the EuroMed project in Cairo when we visited the Egyptian museum. We were able to meet people in the Education Service. Two visually impaired people worked there, teaching all visitors (mostly school children) about model making, drawing their attention to many details.
