Exhibition concept by:
13 October – 4 December 2022
From October 13 to December 4, 2022, all residents of Vukovar and visitors to the city of Vukovar can view the visiting archaeological exhibition of the Zagreb City Museum – „Zagreb in spe / Small Items - Great Stories“
The exhibition by the author Aleksandra Bugar, senior curator, was originally set up in the Zagreb City Museum until May 2022. Relatively small, but complex, it was conceived as a look into the Zagreb past through only six objects. They were selected for their potential to revive the story of space, time and people in Zagreb’s distant past. They introduce us to a period that spans several thousand years, from prehistory to the Early Middle Ages.
The exhibition is intended for everyone - it is inclusive in both idea and execution. It is accessible to all visitors and adapted to people with disabilities.The preparation of this exhibition considered certain technical adaptation standards: the height of display cases, replicas of objects that blind people can touch, font size, abbreviated legends in braille, enlarged print and legends in sign language.
Through its ‘Tactile Info Points’ Programme Zagreb City Museum has, for many years, worked to adapt its permanent exhibition for people with disabilities, especially the blind and visually impaired. It is recognised as a space that is open to all social groups, that cooperates with various associations and constantly encourages accessibility for people with disabilities. It was for these reasons that Zagreb City Museum became part of the Come In! International Museum Community in 2020. We proudly display this logo and are continuing to adapt the Museum’s spaces and permanent and temporary exhibitions to the requirements promoted by this community, and our philosophy boils down to five words – the Museum is for everyone!
