This paper explains how wayfinding system helps museum visitor to understand the information given in a museum. Museum user itself have a varied background of visitors, including people with disability such as blind people. As a public space, museum generally provide certain information for their visitors. Such information can be understood by visitors in different ways, therefore, visitors tend to move independently to understand the information given in the museum. To accommodate the needs of all visitors, adjustments are needed in the museum so that the museum can be accessed by all visitors. In this case, a wayfinding system appears to direct museum visitors when they are exploring the museum. The purpose of the wayfinding system itself does not only provide direction for a person to move, but also to understand the environment in which they are in. In general, the wayfinding system is presented visually, but for those who have visual disability it requires the use of other sensory to understand the wayfinding system. Therefore, an adjusted wayfinding system in the museum must be present optimally so that it can be accessed by all visitors including those with visual disability.
