The Tactual Museum, unique in Greece and one of the very few of its kind in the world, was founded in 1984 for the visually impaired to share our cultural inheritance through their touch.
Since 2004 there have been special educational and interactive programs conducted on a daily basis for students of all ages, as well as adults visually impaired and sighted ones from Greece and all over the world.
The museum is housed in a two-story neo-classical building constructed in 1951 in Kallithea. Οn July 1st, 2016 a part of the ceiling of the Tactual Museum collapsed and caused great damage to the exhibit. As a result, the Museum has been closed, while maintenance and construction work is being conducted.
The costs for the maintenance and construction work needed to be done are quite expensive, and we are now faced with covering these unexpected costs. We are in need of support to ensure that we can re-open the Tactual Museum and can continue to provide a cultural, social and educational experience to those who can benefit from its services.
