THE BLIND-HISTORICAL COLLECTION

This collection serves to illustrate the cultural and social-historical development of the care for the blind and the visually impaired in Denmark, from the age of philanthropy in the early 1800s to the all-encompassing welfare state at the end of the twentieth century.

The collection contains large amounts of objects, pictures and books in both point, relief and moon script. The collection is considered one of the best recorded blind-historical collections in the world; and is second to none in availability. The hope is that the collection will serve as a source of inspiration for teachers of the blind and the visually impaired and as a social-historical information centre on the care of the visually impaired.

Please note that the registration is all in Danish
