    The seabed is often considered the world’s largest museum, however, to-date, only divers or personal submersibles are able to descend to the seabed to visit these historic time capsules. The result is a prevalent out of sight and out mind outlook amongst the wider public when it comes to underwater cultural heritage. The reason for this is simple – the physical barrier created by the sea itself. Mitigating against this, is the central principle of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage, which established the raising of public awareness as a central tenet of the Convention. This principle is fully endorsed by The Virtual Museum – Underwater Malta, …

    Welcome to the Relaunch of Museum for All! The last months have been difficult for all of us, and especially for those who work in culture. Most European museums are reopening for their public. But will they be Museums for all? We are not only talking about the classic categories of disabilities. What about free wifi, open data policy, gluten-free and vegan food options, bicycle parking, gender-neutral language, and childcare? Most big institutions have already learned the lesson and adapted to new visitor profiles, on site and online. To help the many thousands of smaller museums all over Europe, we have founded Museum For All, an initiative that started in Spain and …
