Accessibility assessment

Object description

The museum is poorly accessible. The car park has a gravel surface, as does the sloped path leading to the entrance. There is a ramp at the main entrance. There is sufficient room to manoeuvre inside the museum, but high thresholds and steps regularly appear between spaces. The ground floor houses the chapel and the spaces for temporary exhibitions. Access to them is possible with moving ramps. Access to the exhibitions and collections on the upper museum floors is only possible via stairs. The building does not have a lift. Glass display cases with exhibited items encroach on the height of the space in some places, constituting a safety risk because they are not adequately marked. The building does not have accessible sanitary facilities. The gravel path on the other side of the car park leads to an open-air museum featuring Škopar House, which depicts 16

th

century life and was recently moved here. The house is poorly accessible due to high thresholds, low doorframes and insufficient room to manoeuvre.
