Museo Omero is a tactile museum in Ancona, Italy, and one of the few places in the world where the knowledge of art is transmitted not through sight but through touch. The museum aims to help the visually impaired to experience art but its unique multi-sensory exhibition is accessible to everyone.

Established in 1993, the innovative museum hosts various copies and casts of real archeological finds and pieces of art like the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, and Michelangelo’s Pietà. Architectural models of famous buildings like the Parthenon, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Saint Peter’s Basilica are also on display, along with several original sculptures by contemporary artists.
