Accessibility Building a place for all to enjoy

Kiewit Luminarium is committed to accessibility, diversity and inclusion. We believe all of our visitors and guests should be able to access our website, and we strive simultaneously to provide a visually rich user experience.

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is the concept of whether a product or service can be used by everyone—however they encounter it.


Why should it matter to you?

Good product or service design is not just about making things accessible for people with disabilities. It’s about making things work better for all people — and that includes you!

At Kiewit Luminarium, we’ve set out to build a place for all people to explore their curiosity, and that starts with a commitment to accessibility. This accessibility policy outlines exactly what you can expect us to deliver throughout the entirety of your experience at the Luminarium.

What are we doing to be accessible?

Below is a non-exhaustive list of items we have implemented to enhance our webpages, so they are as easy as possible to navigate for all users.

For those users who need it, our goal is to facilitate access to our website using assistive technologies, such as a screen reader, text to speech or speech recognition software, screen magnifier, and/or keyboard emulators.

All pages use valid, structured, semantic HTML5. Visual styling is provided by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and enhanced user interaction is provided by JavaScript.

In addition, we have designed and are implementing a wide array of accessibility-driven features in our physical building and exhibitions, including bi-lingual (Spanish and English) signage, pathways and points of entry for those who are differently abled, consideration of sensory differences, and more. Please check back for more information regarding our commitment to accessibility as we approach our April opening.


Site layout

Our webpage layouts are structured for easy navigation for individuals using a screen reader. We use semantic HTML5 with appropriate tags to distinguish content headings, sections, listings, tables, and other formatting features so that guests can easily and consistently use the website with assistive technology.


Text alternatives

Wherever images appear on our webpages, a text-based alternative is provided for screen readers to read the alternate text content.


Audio and video content

Many of our webpages contain audio and video contents, and wherever it is feasible we provide a text-based alternative, including captions and transcripts.


Text and background colors

Our webpages are often rich with content, images and functionality, and we consider accessibility in our design and content creation process.



Most modern browsers support page zooming functionality, to allow users to increase or decrease the size of the page content without loss of content or function. Our webpages are optimized to use the browser zoom functionality. Users will be able to zoom-in or zoom-out for most parts of the webpages.


Keyboard accessibility

Most parts of our webpages can be accessed using only tab-based keyboard or keyboard emulators to navigate through the site.


Browser support

We test our webpages to render correctly on most recent versions of Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Google Chrome.


Third party provided components

Many of our webpages use third-party-vendor-provided components. While Kiewit Luminarium cannot control third-party components, we encourage our vendors to provide content and components that are accessible and user friendly.


User generated content

Some of our webpages use social media widgets that contain user-generated content and images. Kiewit Luminarium does not control user-generated content, including whether it is accessible or user friendly.
