Groups with Special Needs

Blind-School-Visit The Museum is dedicated to working for enrichment of groups with special needs or the underprivileged groups as part of its Universal Accessibility initiative. The Museum organises special programmes and activities for such groups on a regular basis.

Tactile Tours

The Museum conducts tactile tours using replicas, accessory collections, large print and Braille text for mainly for visually-impaired visitors (groups of 10 – 35 persons). This programme also includes prior training to volunteers, docents and caretakers accompanying the visitors.

How to plan Tactile Tours?

  • Tactile tours must be booked a month in advance at least. 
  • Volunteers will be required to come for orientation and training before the actual visit. 
  • There should be one volunteer for 5 persons. 
  • To prepare for a tactile tour, read the Guidelines carefully. 

Groups with Special Needs

The Museum organises planned visits for such as underprivileged, people with disabilities, and other special communities. Entry to the Museum is FREE OF CHARGE. Various interactive programmes are also conducted for these groups with little or no charge. NGOs and concerned organisations can get in touch with the Education Department for more information on planning a visit.
