Abstract
Initially people considered museums only as an institution for collecting, repairing, preserving and displaying objects, but now it is an education oriented place for different classes of people. The purpose of this study is simply to determine whether students with visual impairments already know about museums and how museums can better contribute to their lives and what those students hope to gain from museums. Also what are the future plans of the museum to improve the educational quality of visually disabled people? This study showed that visiting museums is very beneficial for all types of visually disabled students, but unfortunately the educational activities for those students are still insufficient, so the old plans to improve their educational quality in the future should be revamped and many new plans should be implemented. In future, museums need to introduce educational facilities for visually disabled people, free wheelchairs, separate entrances for barrier-free access, various games and events, electronic media, tour and exhibition programmes, tactile objects and tactile books.
