Access- Sensory

This section gives on information on visiting the museum with sensory impairments. We’re working to improve our accessibility so please give us any feedback.

Blind or Visually Impaired

Information:

Information is on display labels which are written in black ink and on white paper.  We are working to produce large-print versions of our leaflets and display labels.

We are looking into grants that will enable us to provide an auditory tour of the museum.

Tactile Exhibits:

Some of our exhibits can be touched and we’re going to make a map of where these are and describe their locations here.

Lighting:

The museum is well lit with internal lighting in display cases and LED track lighting in the galleries.

D/deaf or Hard of Hearing

Captioning:

Our touchscreen display has no audio, and all information is provided via open captioning by default.

T-Loop

A T-loop is available at the front desk and all staff are trained in its use.

Auditory exhibits:

Some displays have an auditory component that can be heard by pressing a large yellow button that says “Press Me for more information”. We are working on having written transcripts of these.
