Launching in 2021
Over the next few months I will be piecing together the Museums and Me Directory. This part of the website will include sites and locations that best connect families to heritage, culture and nature across the island, and will be an on-going project to highlight the incredible resources we have for families right on our doorstep.
I can’t wait to share it with you!
A Sneak Peek
I have a lot of plans for the directory, including…
I’m delighted to share the Museums and Me ‘Rainbow Rating’! Each site will have a different score depending on how they rate in seven different categories, from buggy access and facilities, to content and events.
Sites will also include a Sensory Forecast. This badge will outline important sensory information for families and carers. I have been in touch with two separate charity organisations for support to ensure the information provided is as accurate, useful and helpful as it can be.
The Special Needs badge will go into more detail on accessibility within different sites: wheelchair access, audioguides, visual guides etc. It will also outline any parking/ramp problems, lifts and doorway-sizing.
Museums and Me Ambassadors
As I am one person it is impossible for me to visit every site in Ireland in quick succession! If you feel you visit cultural hubs a lot and would like to contribute to the directory, please do get in touch! I’d be delighted to share your feedback.
Submit your Museum, Gallery or Centre
If you work at or own a site that fits into the relevant categories (heritage, culture or nature) and would like to be included in the directory, please contact me directly and I will send on the necessary application form. There is no charge to be included. You will also have a section to highlight upcoming events, etc, for our calendar.
