museeum – change your museum visiting experience

“Museeum” is an innovative initiative designed to bridge the gap between visually impaired individuals and the enriching world of museums. It aims to provide a meaningful and inclusive experience for everyone, regardless of their visual abilities.

In many cases, visually impaired individuals face challenges when it comes to fully engaging with the captivating exhibits found in museums. “museeum” addresses this issue by fostering connections between visually impaired individuals and sighted individuals who are eager to share their visual experiences.

Through “museeum,” both visually impaired and sighted users are invited to explore the cultural and intellectual environment of museums in a new and interactive way.

The problem

Inclusivity at museums is a topic of constant research and improvement. Even with the rapid technological progress, only 5.5% of visually impaired Europeans visit museums regularly.

There is room to improve and implement social and collaborative solutions to increase this percentage and work towards a more inclusive world with reduced inequalities.

Friendly and inclusive UI design

The application takes on a friendly and accessible form while utilizing inclusive elements. The colours are highly contrasted and elements are visible and comprehensible by all colour blind users. The application also utilizes “Bright and Dark Mode” to ease out the reading for those who have a sensitive vision.

Creating a safe environment

It is evident that meeting new people can be intimidating and scary. “museeum” aims to connect people with similar interests, perspectives, and characteristics to make the first interaction as easy as possible. While providing the option to communicate with voice messages before physically getting together.

Also, “museeum” creates a trusting and safe environment for all of its users with the help of museum staff, account verification, and contact info sharing.

The “museeum” narrative video aims to tell the story of users while showcasing the usage of the application with a warm and light tone.
