The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) sets new international benchmarks for universal design. Beyond providing universal building accessibility, the museum delivers its exhibitions in innovative ways, ensuring people of all ages and abilities are able to engage with and experience museum content in a meaningful way.
The museum’s exceptionally design was developed with nation-wide input from the disability community. It utilises cutting-edge technology and pioneering Canadian accessibility research. The result is an architectural masterpiece, that extends beyond the purely aesthetic to integrate world-class wayfinding, physical accessibility, visitor services and universally interactive digital and non-digital exhibition content.
