Tactile: Adjective, Meaning: perceptible by touch hear it
Tactile exhibits present portions of an exhibit’s information in a format that is open to touch or manipulation. They can contain any object that can be reproduced in three dimensions… in essence, the whole physical world around us… real or imagined. Frequently, tactile exhibits represent things that are “out of touch” or “out of reach” because they are too big, too small, too delicate, too dangerous, too precious, too far away, or, as with aquariums, part of an alien environment.
