Museus para Todos
Sónia Maria Almeida Santos
AbstractThe intention of this work is to broaden the issues related to the accessibility with a public with special needs, not in its global scope but specifically in the accessibility of museums to people with a disability. The level of awareness regarding this issue has been increasing and it is becoming indispensable for the museums, as socio – cultural spaces to accept in their missions the inclusion of all publics and to regard people with disabilities as target audiences to be conquered and not as a minority that needs to be satisfied. Integration and communication are key factors which must be included in the programming agenda of this century museums since they function as connective elements to a diversified society which presents itself as a culture consumer. This way, the inclusion will not only cover the architectonic aspect but also the communicational, informatics and electronics aspects. It is important that the professionals at the museums consider these aspects as a matter of giving access to all citizens and not just to the ones that have a disability.
