Ancient Egypt - Haptic Handling (Tactile Event)

25th November 2018 - 25th November 2018
A photo of a man and a young girl sat at a table in front of a digital replica of an ancient Egyptian cat. The girl is wearing headphones.

Using a new digital platform harnessing haptic technology, this is a rare opportunity to come and touch a Digital Touch Replica of an Ancient Egyptian wooden cat sarcophagus, find out more about it and its stories, all at your own pace.

Museums and galleries are full of objects that are kept behind glass and are often very fragile or too valuable to touch and this prevents you from getting up close. This is a unique opportunity to interact with a digitised object in the museum collection where you can touch, discover and learn.

This session is particularly suitable for visitors with visual impairments.

Sessions will run at intervals between 12pm and 3pm.

Delivered in collaboration with Manchester Museum.

Deafblind interpretation is provided on 24 and 25 November.

BSL is provided on 24 November.
