Knowing through touch is also an extraordinary opportunity to understand the world, art, design for all those who see us, who can visit blindfolded, and it is a way to allow people who cannot see us to know hands what everyone else knows with their eyes.
This museum houses a collection of tactile wooden models that - almost as if it were a three-dimensional encyclopedia to leaf through with your hands - reproduce aspects of the landscape, architecture, art, archeology and design.
With a visit to the Varese Tactile Museum you can verify how tactile models have a double function: didactic and emotional, knowing through touch you discover a new world.
In addition to the models, the museum hosts multisensory itineraries and installations, capable of reconciling fun with an interest in experimentation; these are paths in which the visitor has the opportunity to verify, while having fun, how the senses speak a special language capable of letting us know all aspects of reality better and in greater depth.
