Museums are important places for cultural participation and personal development, and they need to serve the whole population. However, disabled people often experience problems in accessing the objects presented, main exhibitions halls, temporary exhibition spaces and sometimes even the museum venues themselves. These problems are not only on a spatial scale, but also include poorly designed information channels, wrong approaches, and system-scale problems. As Istanbul is a culturally rich centre that includes many museums and historical sites, there is a need for research on the accessibility of museums and how to provide more inclusive solutions for everyone. This project will be carried out in collaboration with two partner NGOs - “Six Dots Foundation for the Blinds” and “The Spinal Cord Paralytics Association of Turkey”.

Specific areas that can be examined within the subject are:

  • Accessibility within historical places
  • Accessibility problems regarding museum entrances and exits
  • Designs of exhibition units
  • Independent access in the museum space
  • Solutions for permanent or temporary exhibitions
  • Information systems for museum and exhibition contents
  • Development of informative activities and approaches
  • Solutions for museum websites
  • Accessibility of museum cafes, toilets and gift areas
  • Multi-sensory solutions to make the experience better for everyone
