Everyone has the right to participate in Museum events and activities without discrimination based on race, gender, language, religion, opinion, ethnicity, or any other factor.

Everyone has the right to feel safe at Museum events without fear of discrimination or harassment, whether sexual, physical or verbal.

By embracing safe-space principles and operating methods, we want to have a space where everyone contributes to creating an equal and mutually respectful atmosphere through their own actions.

If you encounter any inappropriate behaviour on the Museum premises or something worries you, please do contact us.
