Cooperation for open access to museums - towards a wider inclusion

Project status
EU Project

COME-IN! was co-financed by the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme. It contributed at enhancing cultural heritage in Central Europe (CE) and at increasing the capacities of small and medium-sized museums by making them accessible to ALL visitors with different kinds of disabilities.

The Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat coordinated a multifaceted network of museums, disability associations, academic representatives, training institutions and policy makers from CE, who defined transnational high-level standards and ensured know-how transfer to guarantee accessibility to museums. Specific guidelines were developed to help organise accessible collections as well as inclusive multi-sensorial exhibitions. A training handbook for museum operators is also available.

An innovative promotional tool - the COME-IN! label - was elaborated to award museums complying with the established accessibility standards. The path towards accessibility is still going on, and other 12 museums joined us in 2020.
