Dementia Mystery Shopping

This year the Huguenot Museum took part in a dementia ‘mystery-shoppers’ project with Rica and DEEP (Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project). Members of DEEP and Memorybilia who are living with dementia visited the Huguenot Museum anonymously to see how accessible the galleries are. It was great for the Museum to get involved in this project as it allows us to see what changes we need to make to ensure the Museum is accessible to as many people as possible. If you are interested in finding out more about this project you can find the press release and report at the following sites.
