Accessibility and diversity checklist for museums

The checklist can be used to independently assess and develop accessibility and diversity in museums. The aim is to make museums as pleasant and meaningful places for as many people as possible.

The checklist serves as a support for considering different aspects of accessibility and for developing your own ideas. The checklist serves as a to-do-list, a tool to support the development of ideas in the daily life of a museum. You can detach parts from the list and adapt them to your own needs, such as exhibition planning, communications development, notes for customer service desks, training material etc.
