Access and inclusion at local museums

NIMC are delighted to announce that we will be working with Access Matters to deliver access & inclusion Audits at 7 local museums.

10 February 2020


The museums involved include:

Mount Stewart

Andrew Jackson Cottage/ US Rangers Museum

Irish Linen Centre and Lisburn Museum

Carrickfergus Museum

Ballycastle Museum

Castle Ward

The Argory


The Access & Inclusion Audits will address the following objectives:

·         Support Section 7, User & their Experiences – Be accessible to the public – in the UK Museums Accreditation scheme by providing a maximum of 7 local museums with baseline evidence of their current provision of access and inclusion from a visitor perspective

·         Deliver an Access & Inclusion Audit Report for each museum that will identify priority areas of work that will inform future planning and support funding bids to be more accessible and inclusive
