Filmed at the on the 18th February 2014, I tried to capture as many features as possible for disabled visitors in this short film. The trip started by checking their website for access information: which contained much detail. There are concessions for disabled visitors; induction loop for hearing aid users at reception; a virtual tour of a tiny cabin area of narrowboat Coronis - which is too small to be accessible by wheelchair. Braille information is provided at listening posts; there is a good egress arrangement in place from the first floor; tactile exhibits; ramped access to the canal side; an audio tour for visually-impaired visitors; subtitles where possible on film; items at a height which can be seen from a seated or standing position; seating available; tactile surfaces at the top and foot of staircases - for a small museum they have achieved a lot! If this gives you some ideas to welcome disabled people then it will have achieved something. The music track is called Haystacks.?
