The Smithsonian Institution
The Smithsonian Institution publishes the Smithsonian Guidelines for Accessible Exhibition Design (1996) a free guide for visitors with disabilities with information on access features in each individual museum. In addition to publishing exemplary books, the Smithsonian Accessibility Program has done a superlative job of supporting access in its many museums. They produce outstanding training sessions throughout the staff and work closely with the development of each exhibit. The Sakler Gallery at the Smithsonian was the 1998 winner of the AAM Access Award.
