I've found that many museums in London are willing to create resources for
our students if given reasonable notice of a visit:
The British Museum provided us with a particularly busy and brilliant day of
activities around Mummies and dessication with lots of dried fruit to eat.
The Tate gallery  arranged for us all to dress up in period costumes and
appear in various paintings.
The National Portrait Gallery took photographs of each student posing with
props.
These are just a few of the activities arranged in order to attempt to make
their works more accessible.

Corporations have every responsibility to attempt something similar, and do
so in many instances.
Individuals and small businesses naturally are less easily able to
contribute, however they can be expected not to be deliberately obstructive.
