Accessibility, museums and gaming

April 21, 2010


I’d like to thank those that have responded by listing their own choices of items that they’d like to see in their own museum.

The interesting fact is that no-one to date has provided a duplicate item from someone else’s list indicating just how diverse we consider our own heritage to be.

I hope to receive more suggestions in due course but thought I’d list all of the suggested items received so far
