Inclusion and diversity

We are working hard to become a fully inclusive museum. As we want everyone to enjoy our fascinating displays and exhibits, they have to be accessible to one and all. No-one should feel excluded just because they have a disability or because they find it hard to speak or read German well.

This has led us to systematically implement a whole range of changes.
 

Accessibility

Full accessibility requires barrier-free access throughout the museum. However, our historical buildings are under a preservation order and this is not always easy.

The redevelopment project that we are undertaking over the next few years will incorporate accessibility right from the outset. To this end, we have brought members of the relevant stakeholder groups on board to provide us with expert advice. In addition, valuable insights can be gleaned from individual pilot projects on how best to communicate information and design our exhibitions.

Details of current access arrangements are available here.

Outreach

We see our museum as a place where people can meet. Our program aims to allow people with and without disabilities to share their experience rather than offer alternative formats for special stakeholder groups.

For example, we have organized regular public guided tours with sign-language interpreters, as well as guided tours and exhibits designed along the two-senses principle. Exhibits that can be touched, smelled or heard are of interest to all our visitors – even though they are specifically aimed at the blind and visually impaired.
 

Diversity

We are working closely with our migration research department and the LGBTI+ history project to ensure that social diversity is increasingly reflected in our collections.
