“My knowledge of how museums work in the US will be essential in connecting with my colleagues and understanding their expectations. I bring a deep understanding of the impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act on design standards within the museum structure.”


For the occasion, the team made it to the AAM Annual Meeting & Expo, the gathering of museologists and museum professionals, held in Baltimore from May 16 to 19. The team showcased its latest innovations in inclusive design, including tactile objects and tailored signage solutions.

The expo was a unique opportunity for attendees to discover how Tactile Studio can transform museum experiences to make them universally accessible, and to promote French know-how internationally.

Tactile Studio invites museum directors, exhibition designers, and all museum professionals to join us in exploring new possibilities for enriching cultural experiences for everyone.
