Homer State Tactile Museum

The Homer State Tactile Museum

The Omero State Tactile Museum , a model of excellence in the scenario of cultural opportunities for blind and visually impaired people , is an innovative museum of great attraction for all those who want to approach and learn about art.

A unique museum, without barriers, which intends to export its experience and philosophy by promoting the multisensory enjoyment of cultural heritage. Housed in the eighteenth-century rooms of the Mole Vanvitelliana in Ancona , it is proposed as a three-dimensional encyclopedia of art history.

His collection organically documents the plastic and sculptural art of all times: from true copies of classical Greece, by Michelangelo and Canova to the original sculptures of the rich contemporary section with, among others, De Chirico, Marini, Martini, Messina, Pistoletto and many others . In 2021 we inaugurated the new Design collection with 32 iconic objects in the history of Italian design since 1960.

The Museum is a training and research center, a permanent laboratory for the enhancement and use of the work of art, a promoter of national and international tactile exhibitions and thematic reviews, an educational agency for schools and families.
