Finnish museum's accessibility information now online
The web page www.museums.fi maintained by the Finnish Museums Association includes now a new service; information search about the accessibility of different Finnish museums. One can search for museums, which have an accessible entrance, accessible toilets, an induction loop, accessible parking, tactile objects, wheelchairs for loan and special guided tours.
At the moment the museum register includes 108 museums, which have an accessible entrance. Accessible toilets can be found from 144 museums. Accessible parking possibility is in 83 museums and wheelchairs for loan in 42 museums. 18 museums have an induction loop. Tactile objects can be found from 101 museums. 56 museums offer special guided tours.
The project is supported by the Ministry of Education.
