“Ensuring a good experience and accessibility for the visitors of the museum exhibition, Nature in Sweden”

The Swedish Museum of Natural History is a government agency that reports to the Ministry of Culture. The Natural History Museum is a biological and geological museum in Stockholm that was established in 1819. The museum is a world-class research institution and results from nearly 300 years of research trips and collection. They research the species' relationship and evolution, the evolution of the globe, environmental toxins, and how humans affect nature.
Background
The booths have a touch screen that should work for all visitors regardless of age or disability. All visitors should be able to use the displays to get information and understand how to navigate. This places high demands on how the stand is designed from an accessibility perspective.
