I visited Some art museums in florance, Italy and had a similar experience. I was able to wear gloves and touch most of the sculptures. They had interestingly created several famous paintings in relief on plaster of paris tablets that they said were very close replicas and that I could touch and get a sense of the original art work. It was a truly fascinating experience.

The list of the museums given in the article is very handy.
Moreover,interestingly they are celebrating 25 years of ADA this month and we will be celebrating 20 years of the PWD Act in the upcoming December. And they got azadi in 1976 and we got in 1947? so who is more progressive? Anyway just a funny analogy hmm?
Read this amazing post: and those who are working with the National museum for making it accessible do share with the concerned officials.
