Watch out for preconceived ideas, accessibility is not only for disabled people: it also helps improve the convenience of everyone's visit, both for access to areas and to content.
It affects everyone: children, adults, wheelchairs users, the hard of hearing, those who don't speak the same language, blind or partially sighted visitors, those with mental disabilities, the elderly...
It's a positive approach for everyone:
- both children and adults love the tactile models we have created for visually impaired visitors
- foreign visitors greatly appreciate the audiovisual subtitles aimed at visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing
- those who have difficulty reading or who are dyslexic are happy to use the documents available in large print
- the elderly and parents with a child in a pushchair benefit from sloping floors which allow access for wheelchair users.
Improving accessibility improves quality of life for everyone.
