Tactile Museum

Project title

Museo Tattile

Description of initiative

Located in the spaces of the Mole Vanvitelliana of Ancona, the museum was created to make art accessible in every possible way, offering everyone the chance of a sensory experience in a museum context. Formed in the early ‘90s with the aim of documenting the entire history of the material culture and the plastic arts, the collection has been enriched over time with numerous acquisitions and today comprises around 300 works. The Museo Tattile Omero is an innovative and one-of-a-kind museum that help visitors discover art by using your hands and senses. Visitors experience new sensations and unexplored emotions thanks to an “inclusive” journey of discovery into the history of world art and architecture.
