People with visual handicaps or impediments are given the opportunity of acquainting themselves with the museum Collections thanks to the collaboration of Iberdrola and ONCE, the Spanish National Association for the Blind. Firstly, they will take an approximately 1-hour visit through the museum´s different exhibition halls before taking part in a specially prepared experimentation space where they will be invited to have tactile, physical contact with a series of materials and artistic techniques and four sculptures from the Collection in order for them to be able to analyse the relationships between size and shape, texture and matter, etc.
People with cognitive difficulties
In collaboration with Iberdrola and Gorabide, the special visitor´s programme designed for people with cognitive difficulties poses an introduction to the museum that is specially adapted to the needs and interests of each particular group. The aim of these visits is to offer people with special learning difficulties the same resources, spaces and services that are available to the remainder of the general public. Not only are visits intended to prove useful tools in their everyday lives and in the lives of their carers, but it is hoped that they will prove to be agreeable, meaningful experiences for everyone.
People participating in social insertion programmes
Visits to the museum´s Permanent and different Temporary Collections have been specially designed for people in social insertion programmes. A museum Educator will accompany them on these specially prepared visits that will use methodologies that will be adapted to each particular group´s special interests and expectations.
