The Manacor History Museum renewed its website in 2018, and since then it played a decisive role in the accessibility actions carried out at the museum. Perhaps one of the most relevant actions is the creation of a section where users can find each of the actions aimed at physical, visual, auditory and cognitive accessibility that take place in the center.

Web tools such as voice memos, downloadable content or accessible databases allow the museum to reach any audience more directly. Being closer to the public means being more accessible too.

It is necessary to allocate resources to the web because it will open the doors of the museum, and this possibility must represent a goal for all institutions.
