Accessibility for All

Setting a new standard for museums – The Museum is setting a new benchmark for accessibility. It incorporates inclusive design into all aspects of its building design, exhibits, programming and business practices.

Universally accessible content – Cutting-edge technology and pioneering Canadian research have ensured that the visitor experience is designed for the full range of human diversity. An Inclusive Design Advisory Council provides consultation. It helps to ensure that the needs of all people are met and every visitor can participate equally.

Beyond standard targets – The Museum has met or exceeded Smithsonian guidelines for accessible design, as well as stringent criteria under the National Building Code and Web-based accessibility standards.
