This website has been designed so that the text is zoomable to make it more accessible for people with visual impairments.
As museums attract such a wide and varied audience, we make it our business to ensure everyone who walks through the door has been considered.
It’s about every visitor going away with a memory, having connected to the subject, feeling that they’ve experienced something special.
Our design solutions don’t just appeal to the general visitor. We also improve the access to exhibits for academics and specialists.
We strive to design exhibitions that exceed DDA requirements giving access to everyone physically and intellectually. It’s not just about ramps and large point sizes!
Older people may be better able to understand things in a historical context but may be less comfortable using IT. We also design with issues like seating and acoustics in mind.
Design solutions should aim to encourage interaction within a family group, allowing parents to act as enablers, but sometimes they will be surprised to see that these roles can be reversed.
Some children gather information at a fast and furious pace whilst others need space for contemplation and reflection. We help museums balance the needs of schools with those of other users.
