Accessibility and diversity checklist for museums

© MRBAB Two guides make a big gesture together to explain a painting to a group of people.


The checklist, published by Culture for All Service and ICOM Finland, can be used to independently assess and develop accessibility and diversity in museums. The aim of the resource is to make museums pleasant and meaningful places for as many people as possible.

The checklist supports the review of different aspects of accessibility. It serves as a to-do-list, a tool to support the development of ideas in the daily life of a museum. Museums may adapt it to their own needs, such as exhibition planning, communications development, notes for customer service desks, training material etc.

The checklist is available in English, Finnish and Swedish:

Culture for All Service promotes cultural services that are inclusive, equitable and take diverse audiences and art professionals into account. For example, the service offers information and tools for professionals in the museum field to improve accessibility and knowledge of diversity.
