Accessibility assessment

Object description

The museum building is partially accessible. The building is one of six of the museum complex in the area with a permanent ethnological exhibition on the housing culture of ironmaking families. There are no accessible parking spots near the museum entrance. The entrance to the building has double doors that do not enable independent access to wheelchair users. The spaces are located on the ground floor and are difficult to traverse because of many high and unmarked thresholds. The sanitary facilities are adapted but were inaccessible during the documentation phase due to exhibition items being set up. The exhibition spaces are not adequately lit.
