Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion
Special measures must be taken to ensure that visitors who are blind or low-vision can enjoy and engage with material. The Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Touch Tours program presents such visitors with tactile-heavy presentations. Hear about the museum’s communication strategies for this community, efforts to improve content accessibility, and methods for acquiring funding and buy-in. Evaluate your own institution’s accessibility, and develop cost-effective resources to make a visit easy and educational for a patron who is blind or low-vision.
