The Museum's goals are:
Creation of a database of all artists whose works are displayed in the museum, together with their CV (Bio) as well as insightful notes shared by the artists themselves to better illustrate their works.
Research focused on old and ancient Tarot to help promote the preservation of that which throughout the centuries gave life and meaning to this creative means of expression.
Creation of a vast database to record a census of the most important and influential decks in the world.
Workshops and conferences with various guest artists and speakers.
Organization and promotion of special events and exhibitions.
Creation of a virtual tour website of the Museum.
Creation of a lending library of books, and of rare and unusual texts.
Arnell Ando has many links to the tarot museum and the

Mysteries of Mary Tarot Deck
Here is the link to the review that Arnell Ando, author, editor
and creator of more than one tarot deck, gave the
Mysteries of Mary tarot deck.
I am deeply honoured that the deck has been included in this valuable
resource and I will be visiting the museum and meeting
Morena in person in August.
I will keep you updated with pictures of my visit to Bologna
and the Museo dei Tarocchi
