The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum strives to provide an inclusive environment and to ensure that all visitors, employees, applicants for employment, and individuals associated with the Museum are treated respectfully and equitably.
The Museum is committed to making its information and communication technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Our approach to Section 508 requirements gives individuals with disabilities access to electronic and information technology and data comparable to the access obtainable by individuals without disabilities unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the Museum.
Regardless of the disability, the Museum endeavors to provide an excellent user experience to all users. In order to effectively serve all users, we frequently review our website to make sure that it is accessible, and your feedback on how we can make it better is welcome.
