"Please do not touch" will become "please touch" in Lebanese museums for the country's blind and visually impaired consumers of tourism and culture.Museums worldwide traditionally prohibit the touching of art and artifacts, a rule that has long denied visually impaired people the experience of exploring cultural heritage. The three museums will open the specialized exhibitions to the visually impaired starting January. Tactile exploration, Braille descriptions and guided tours will be available every Monday at the Beirut National Museum, Afeiche told The Daily Star. Other museums will later announce their special tours dates.
