In Estonia, a significant number of museums are committed to ensuring accessibility for all visitors, providing an inclusive experience for those with disabilities or different needs.

The Estonian Maritime Museum is a prime example of this. The museum, housed in an ancient building, has taken special measures to facilitate accessibility. These include the installation of tactile flooring, which aids visually impaired visitors in navigation, and an accessible lift. Furthermore, the museum provides audio descriptions and sign language translations to ensure all information is accessible. Additionally, tactile copies of ships are available for a more comprehensive, hands-on experience.

Similarly, the Estonian Art Museum has also emphasized accessibility, specifically focusing on audio descriptions and tactile models. These tools allow visually impaired visitors to explore and understand the museum's collection of sculptures and architectural exhibits in a more personal and immersive way.

The Estonian History Museum is another institution making strides in accessibility. The museum prioritizes audio descriptions and tactile experiences, enhancing the understanding and enjoyment of exhibits for those with visual impairments. Moreover, the museum is wheelchair-accessible, ensuring that individuals with mobility impairments can easily navigate and experience the museum's exhibits.

In summary, these museums in Estonia are making commendable efforts to increase accessibility and inclusivity for all visitors. Their commitment to adapting their exhibits and facilities to cater to different needs sets a positive precedent for other institutions worldwide.
