Social inclusion of those with disabilities has been a concern at Índia Vanuíre Museum since is museological and building reformulation concluded in 2010. In 2011, the museum launched the accessibility project developed by the museologist and doctor from the USP Communication and Arts School, Amanda Pinto da Fonseca Tojal. The proposal includes a tactile mockup with the 3-D representation of the museum spaces, multisensory apps especially accessible to the hearing and visually-challenged public and the audio-description resource in the videos shown at the long-term exhibition Tupã Plural.
Presently, the museum offers the following resources to the physically, sensory or mentally-challenged public:
- Accesses adapted to the exhibition, auditorium and restroom spaces.
- Guided visits for groups – the visit must be previously scheduled.
- Several resources such as tactile mockups, replicas of the exhibition pieces, embossed reproduction of maps and photos, multimedia apps for videos with audio-description and a window with Brazilian sign language (LIBRAS).
- Identified spaces for the physically challenged in front of the museum (we do not have our own parking lot);
- Wheelchairs, walkers and canes for those that do not count on such resources at the moment of the visit.
