Braille Museum

Show more
Museum on the origin of the Braille, from the beginning up to now.

Since January of 2009, the Braille Museum offers the opportunity for young and old to discover the Braille writing system. Next to a biographical draft of Louis Braille (1809−1852) and his invention, the museum is partly dedicated to the modern-day technology and its applications in our daily life, as well as in scholastic and professional environments of people with a visual handicap. Furthermore, the museum exhibits a few relevant objects such as topographical books, old braille writing machines and portable printers. An adjacent room contains a dozen modules retracing Belgian history, to which visitors are encouraged discovering them by sensing and feeling the exhibited objects.
