An exhibition of sculptures, crafted by visually-impaired students, opened its doors to the public at the National Museum of Iran on Saturday.
The so-called “Touching History” event is aimed to open up an opportunity for other visually impaired people to learn more about Iranian history by touching tens of replicas.
The museum also hosted a specialized conference in the area of museums of sightless people on Saturday on the occasion of the International Archaeological Day, according to the museum’s website.
The exhibit can be visited until Friday October 26th from 9 am to 5 pm.
Since 2016, the National Museum of Iran has dedicated a special hall equipped with audio systems, braille signage and moulage of different sculptures for the visually impaired visitors.
The National Museum of Iran which was established in 1937 is comprised of two main complexes which are full of statutes, ceramics, pottery, stone figures, carvings and textile remains among other objects.
