The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, opened to the public in September 2014. This is Canada’s first national museum created since 1967 and the first national museum located outside of the National Capital Region, Ottawa.
The over 47,000 square feet of digitally rich, mixed-media Installations explore the subject of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue. Dialogue is a key word at the CMHR, as this word is a metaphor for the Museum’s approach to experience design – a reciprocal relationship where the Museum informs the visitor but the visitor also informs the Museum.
The entirety of the Museum and exhibits were built with inclusive design and accessibility in mind. The CMHR’s opening day was only the beginning, and we continue to look for ways to improve the experience of visitors.Scott will present innovative concepts developed for in-gallery, mobile, and remote endpoint solutions for the CMHR; including the integration of iBeacons to deliver accessible content to over 120 universal access points inside the museum.
