Essential reading for all professionals concerned with museums and the cultural heritage, with the architecture and design of museums and for those providing service for the disabled. The volume provides access to some of the best practice in the provision for the disabled, and sets out an agenda for future action in museums worldwide.We have, for example, a whole lesson which consists in recognizing and naming different pieces of furniture and interior decoration, counting features seen in the rooms ... The children seem to be more keen in that unusual setting to learn and to use the knowledge they already possess. ... At the same time the deaf children have quite an ambitious school syllabus in history a and very poor memories.
