Arms Gallery at the Government Museum – An Accessible Excursion – Aug. 25, 2016

Explore Differently ( works on building ways to offer options for an accessible outdoor exploration for persons with disability and wheelchair users. Madras Week gives us  a great opportunity to include a few walks that are designed to welcome persons with disability and wheelchair users. Participation welcome from wheelchair users and persons with disabilities and possibly their family members (if they wish to accompany). Also a small number of individuals without disabilities,.

Arrangements for accessible transport (a bus that has a facility to lift wheelchairs) and portable ramps will be made by Explore Differently.  We will also have a special educator to overcome hurdles in communication. We do understand that most of the walks under Madras Day celebration are free of costs. But as we will be arranging for custom transportation and a special educator we need to charge only to cover expenses. Participants who make their own arrangements will not be charged.

Details:We will look at the amazing collection of arms and weapons on display, most of them from the Tanjore armoury, and explore some of the interesting stories and trivia behind them.

Lead:  Rajith Nair, a heritage enthusiast.
