Oh, I went to the Ohio State School for Blind and we had wonderful models of
things like the Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, and maps.  We had standing maps of
the continents and pieces that fit in for the countries.  They were wooden.
And the US.  I guess they don't do that any more.

i went to public schools in miami and we certainly didn't have any of that. I had some amazing teachers that went above and beyond what a teacher was required to do at all grade levels and in to college but not the majority of them. There are rare moments I feel cheeted. I think i could be a very visual person lol. That must have been encredable to feel all those things and have some kind of picture in your head.

how many others had that experience and where couldl you find stuff like that?
