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.

The exhibition is equipped with audio-descriptive supports and panels in braille and black, created by the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali in collaboration with the Omero State Tactile Museum. On the occasion of the exhibition, a calendar of tactile visits with a specialized operator is organized; see the dedicated page.
