Museum Of The American Printing House For The Blind Reviews & Ratings
So thankful to have visited this historical landmark! The executives took the time to come and meet the group from Ohio State. They gave us a wonderful tour and were very throrough! Thank you for being such great hosts.
I learned a lot! I would have never known where a lot of the products and technology and Braille books were being made if I hadn't gone to APH.
They sell a lot of useful stuff for those of us who are blind, such as braille dictionaries and talking time pieces. I personally think that we nee some more of these institutions in the whole wide world. In Mexico where I am from you seldom see an institution such as this one. That is why most blind people are illiterate in our countries.
An ageless company helping so many people with visual impairments over all these years. The museum is very intetesting.
The building houses a museum on the blind and innovations concerning their literacy. There are two floors and it was free to go in. The exhibit is good, and definitely good to learn more if you have never had the chance to become acquainted with any blind persons.
