Accessibility assessment

Object description

The museum is partially accessible. The main entrance is located between Maistrova Street and the museum plaza. There are several “obstacles” (bollards, indented terrain, benches) and external fire escapes without contrasting visual markings near the entrance, which can represent height obstacles for people with visual impairments trying to access the museum. The entrance to the building has sliding glass doors with no step, enabling independent use for wheelchair users. The slightly diagonally sloped sides on the doors at the entrance constitute a height obstacle for people with visual impairments. The museum’s exhibition spaces span all three levels, while the bookstore and lecture hall are located on the ground floor. All the museum levels are accessible via a lift or stairs. There is sufficient room to manoeuvre in the exhibition areas. The building interior has glass surfaces without contrasting visual markings. The exhibited items and equipment in the exhibition spaces do not have contrasting colours and are sometimes placed at a height that can constitute an obstacle for people with visual impairments. Some descriptions of the exhibited items are too small or placed too high. The building is adequately lit everywhere except in the sanitary facilities. The lecture hall on the ground floor is not equipped with an induction loop.
