Information / Museum accessibility mapping project

This project on museum accessibility is promoted by Comune di Bologna in collaboration with Istituzione Bologna Musei and local associations selected for their long-time experience in the field of motor, sensory and cognitive disability.


First of all visits to the city museums have been arranged to test their accessibility to visitors with disabilities. The resultant Accessibility Map was meant to collect, organise and share information on how accessible each Civic Museum is; all information has been published on the museum website.


More specifically, the accessibility of each museum with regard to spaces and collections is described in detail on the museum website according to three different kinds of disability (motor, auditory and visual). A unique and updated information system is now available to visitors and tourists with temporary or permanent disabilities.

Furthermore, a series of aids and services were provided to make museum spaces and collections more accessible to visitors with special needs.

Finally, inclusive types of visit are now available in three experimental museums, selected for their different users and structural characteristics: the Certosa cemetery, the Medieval Civic Museum and the Museum of Industrial Heritage.
