Revitalise hosted a special awards ceremony to celebrate their 2019 Accessible Tourism Report at the Museum of Liverpool last night. Five years on from the first Revitalise Accessible Tourism Report finds Tate Modern has been overtaken by the Museum of Liverpool.
National charity Revitalise hosted a celebration of the Museum of Liverpool’s success in being the most accessible tourist attraction in the UK. The evening saw Revitalise feature a video showcase to recognise the efforts of the leading visitor attractions in giving accessibility the focus it needs. Canapes and drinks were served to the guests including Liverpool dignitaries in support of the campaign, as well as guests from Revitalise Sandpipers.
The Science Museum were also awarded on the night for placing second in the Revitalise Accessible Tourism Report, and the V&A Museum of Childhood were awarded third place.
Susan Raikes, Director of Learning at the Science Museum, said:
“At the Science Museum we recognise the vital importance of accessibility and we are privileged to receive this award from Revitalise tonight. We feel that, while we have made progress, there is still some way to go to achieve our accessibility goals and we aim to continue to improve our facilities.”
