The Tactual Museum of Athens was founded in Athens in 1984 so that visually impaired people may become familiarised with the cultural heritage of Greece.
The museum's exhibits are copies of original artifacts of the Mycenaean, Geometric, Archaic, Austere, classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. There are also exhibits from the Byzantine era and works of art from visually impaired people. This initiative began from the association Faros of Visually Impaired people of Greece in Doiranis Street in Kallithea, a southern suburb of Athens. The museum is open daily from 09.00 to 14.00 and on weekends after making the necessary arrangements with the museums' management.
