Routes for blind and visually impaired visitors

The Ara Pacis Augustae Museum is equipped with permanent tactile aids that allow the blind and visually impaired public to explore and learn about the monument and the museum. The availability of these services is the result of the attention that has been paid over the years to the needs of visually impaired visitors.

At the entrance of the Museum, in the space in front of the Ara Pacis Augustae, the gallery of busts and the scale reproduction of the monument can be explored tactilely during tactile tours guided by specialised personnel.

For dedicated didactic events, see Projects accessible

From 28 May to 04 September 2022, the Museum hosts the exhibition 'Robert Doisneau'. The exhibition is equipped with audio-descriptive supports and tactile panels, created by the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali in collaboration with the Museo Tattile Statale Omero. A calendar of tactile visits with a specialised operator is organised for the exhibition, see the dedicated page
