|I enjoyed the visit because in the exhibition hall there’s audio guidance, display items that can be touched, and an experience section.
At the east side entrance, there’s an instruction bell and a Braille information board is installed. Upon entering, I heard an audio announcement saying: “The information board is this way,” which made it relatively easy to find.
At the reception, you can borrow a portable laminated tactile graphics sheet for the building, which makes it possible to know the location of the exhibition halls and bathrooms.
A while after entering the building, you hear the audio guidance, convenient for knowing the direction of reception and bathrooms.
By making a reservation, it’s possible to get support from trained staff members or volunteer guides.
