"Building a universally designed museum - feeding the curiosity of everyone -"
Nanzan Extension College Public Lecture

August 29, 2012

Universal design is a new concept in the design of museums to make them accessible to everyone. Specifically this entails enabling people with visual impairments to make use of the facilities by incorporating exhibits that can be touched.

The renovation of the Nanzan University Museum of Anthropology currently underway is designed to create a museum embraces these concepts for the curiosity of everyone. (Scheduled to open October 2013.)

During this 2012 academic year public lecture we invite you to come hear about the benefits of the universally designed museum born of experience and contemplation as a joint project with the Nanzan University Museum of Anthropology.
