The Morandi Museum (Museo Morandi) is the biggest and most important public collection dedicated to the painter Giorgio Morandi. It was founded thanks to a considerable donation from his sister Maria Teresa Morandi and located in Palazzo d’Accursio until 2012, when it was moved to MAMbo due to renovation work. The Morandi Museum is part of Bologna Welcome Card network. Free entry for the Card holders.

Motor disability and difficulty of movement
The museum is accessible for the most part. Exhibit spaces are wide and allow easy movement and rest. There is a handicap restroom which is very spacious.
The museum extends over three exhibition areas within the Mambo Museum and is going to be thematically reorganized. One hall houses temporary exhibitions of artists whose works refer to Morandi. There are no explanatory panels about the museum organization and, therefore, a good understanding requires the assistance of the museum staff. Can make autonomous use of content difficult. Videos without subtitles are projected in a space provided in one of the halls with an acoustic situation which does not facilitate the understanding by people with hearing impairments. Restrooms are on the ground floor, well indicated and easily reachable. There are no means of visual communication in case of alarm in the restrooms or in the lift.
The collection is mainly visual and can be explored tactilely through the museum educational materials. Captions and room communications are difficult to read for visually impaired visitors. There is no text in Braille or large print.
