The second day of the expert conference invited participants to explore the question of what the "museum for all" should look like.

Which techniques and concepts help to make history and culture tangible with all senses? What is the significance of easy-to-use language in educational work? How should audio guides and websites be designed to provide barrier-free information and orientation through the exhibition? What strategies do museums use to include the blind and visually impaired, the deaf and hard of hearing, dementia patients and people with learning difficulties?

New concepts for barrier-free exhibition design

Accessible websites – what are the requirements for museums?
