Aids for people with disabilities
Tactile floor plans
Tactile floor plans are made of plastic material in contrasting colours, facilitating the orientation and mobility of visually impaired visitors. They offer basic information about the location of the exhibits in the building, as well as toilet facilities and exits. There are six floor plans available: three portable maps at the reception desk and three maps attached to a one-meter wooden base to the right of the elevator on the ground, second and third floor.
Magnifying glasses are available at the welcome desk.
There is a hearing loop (FM System) available at the welcome desk.
Copies of museum objects
There are 12 copies of selected museum objects included in the permanent exhibition “Between Nature and Culture”. The objects represent the features of individual historical periods, production techniques and ways of life both in Slovenia and elsewhere in the world. They can be touched, enabling the visitors a different understanding of museum objects. They are equipped with audio descriptions in several languages and with a short text in large print for the visually impaired. On the SEM website it is possible to see video clips with subtitles and interpretation in Slovene sign language. The copies are also accompanied with a bilingual publication (in Slovene and English) entitled A Touch of the Past.
There are audio guides through the permanent exhibition “I, We and Others: The Images of My World”, available at the welcome desk.
An exhibition “A Touch of the Past” is accompanied with audio descriptions of the objects.
