Abstract

A museum is a place where we can learn about the culture of a place. Museums rely on their exhibition display to communicate its content. Museum exhibition displays mostly use visual media in communicating its information; they store their collections inside glass boxes, use LED screens, visual projections, and so on. Then how museums can be adapted to be more inclusive to blind visitors who lost their sight? This paper investigates the museum exhibition display, that took place in Bank Indonesia Museum, in its ability to give information to blind visitors. The author observed the existing of Bank Indonesia Museum Exhibition to know what kind of display that they use. Furthermore, to acknowledge if the exhibition can give information for blind visitors, the author experienced visiting the exhibition as a blind visitor. Lastly, the author analysed if it is inclusive and informative or not based on the theories. Based on the studies that have been done by the author, museum exhibition display has to provide medias that can help blind visitors get the information provided such as audio and touch medias, considering the ability of blind visitor to get information from hearing and touching.
