Museum Launches New Exhibit: Making History Accessible

Aug 10, 2021 - 11:35am

Users are invited to test installations that will expand accessibility to historic sites and house museums.

The Intrepid Museum has launched Making History Accessible, a temporary exhibit that invites visitors to test and evaluate a series of five digital and physical experiences that seek to make exhibits at historic sites and house museums more accessible and inclusive. Visitors can explore these prototypes and evaluate their effectiveness. Your input will help the partner sites improve the prototype at their site.

From all of the evaluation and feedback at our partner sites – taking place in spring/summer 2022 – the team will create a digital guide to enable historic site and house museums nationwide to reproduce these low-cost digital and physical projects. Help us make learning universally accessible by sharing your feedback!
