On the Banchina da Chio, there are always people coming in and out of the city. Here is the Omero Tactile Museum of Ancona where people can build a multisensory museum experience thanks to physical contact with the artworks.

WHAT TO SEE!

The Omero Tactile Museum is a model of excellence in the scenario of cultural opportunities for the blind and visually impaired. It is an innovative museum of great interest to all those who want to approach and learn about art. It is a unique barrier-free museum, which aims at exporting its experience and philosophy by promoting the multisensory fruition of cultural heritage. Located in the eighteenth-century rooms of the Mole Vanvitelliana (Vanvitelli Stately Building) in Ancona, it offers a three-dimensional encyclopaedia of the history of art. The collection presents plastic and sculptural art of all times: from copies of classical Greece, Michelangelo and Canova to the original sculptures of the contemporary section with De Chirico, Marini, Martini, Messina, Pistoletto and many others. The Museum is also a training and research centre, a permanent laboratory for the valorisation and fruition of the work of art, a promoter of tactile exhibitions of national and international importance and thematic exhibitions, and an educational institution for schools and families.
