Engaging the senses of All – this was the roadmap for the renovation of The Mankind Museum. It meant engaging the senses not only for the blind but for all visitors. The museum chose to offer 21 stations along which one may discover the history of a family, representative model of a human lifespan. A series of busts, from grandson to grandfather, explain the genetic heritage we inherit and with which comes physical likeness as well as signs of ageing. The tactile discovery of the busts is helped by an audio comment; texts in Braille and in big letters add further information. Read More
