A Braille guide book with tactile images and a guide book for the visually impaired can be borrowed free of charge at the ticket desk.
Museo Galileo also offers tactile tours for blind and partially sighted visitors: a museum operator introduces the objects on display and illustrates their role in the history of science. The tactile exploration of a selection of originals and replicas helps visually impaired visitors to better understand how the instruments are made and work.
Thanks to the museum’s collaborative efforts with the Italian Union of the Blind this service is free of charge and is available in either English or Italian. Advanced reservations are required through the booking office.
