Statuette of the goddess Artemis Ephesia in the Museum for the Visually Impaired, Ephesus.
The Museum for the Visually Impaired

The little-publicized Museum for the Visually Impaired (formerly known as the Museum for the Blind) in the Ephesus archaeological site is housed in a restored ancient shop, hidden behind the Gate of Mazeus and Mithridates to the Lower Agora, next to the Library of Celsus (see the photo on gallery page 33).

The iron gate to it is usually locked, and you have to ask one of the guards at the archaeological site to open it. Enquire at the one of the site's entrances when you arrive. It contains a number of statues and reliefs (copies and originals), including a statue of Artemis, which visually impaired people are allowed to touch and feel. A good idea, although it is a pity they don't tell anybody about it.

If you are visually impaired and have visited this mini museum,
please get in contact and tell us what you think of it.
