Book Review: The Accessible Museum

The English edition

Model programs in 19 American museums offer insights as to how institutions are dealing successfully with issues of accessibility, making adjustments to policy, programs, and facilities in order to reach out to people with disabilities and older adults. This richly illustrated book with its extensive bibliography is an important resource for all museums following the landmark legislation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
