Museums should become a dynamic, constantly changing educational center, accessible to everyone, without exception, including people with disabilities. For this purpose, on September 11 at 11:00 an agreement will be signed between the National Committee of the International Council of Museums of Azerbaijan (ICOM) and the National Historical and Artistic Reserve “Gobustan”.
In accordance with the agreement, methodological support will be provided for the activities of the reserve as an inclusive museum. Methodological support materials were compiled by the National Carpet Museum of Azerbaijan, the first inclusive museum in the country, based on programs designed for people with visual and hearing impairments. So, in order for visually impaired people to get detailed information about Gobustan petroglyphs, tactile models with Braille inscriptions will be attached to this information.
Thus, people with disabilities will have the opportunity to “see” the exhibits of the Gobustan National Historical and Artistic Reserve and to feel the forms of rock paintings.
