Visually Impaired Program: Celebrations

December 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am /

The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

We all have one: that fancy platter we use for family festivities or the glasses we just have to use to toast in the new year. Join us this month as we explore how objects in the Museum’s collection were used around the world in various celebrations!

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by Wednesday, December 7.

VIP tours are also available for school-age or adult groups. To reserve your spot or learn more about group tours, call 205.254.2964.
