Miami Children’s Museum is committed to facilitating and improving the accessibility and usability of its Website, https://www.miamichildrensmuseum.org/. Miami Children’s Museum strives to ensure that its Website services are accessible to persons with disabilities. To accomplish this, Miami Children’s Museum has engaged its Website Provider to assess and implement, over time, the relevant portions of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (“WCAG 2.0 AA”) as its web accessibility standard, which will also bring the website into further conformance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board. Our Website will be tested on a periodic basis to improve the website’s accessibility, as appropriate.
Please be aware that our efforts to improve the Website’s accessibility and usability are ongoing. We anticipate the process may take several months. While we strive to make the website as accessible as possible, our pages may not always pass online testing or validation tools. There may be times when certain accessibility features will become inoperable or unavailable. We ask our users to be patient and understanding during this process.
