Visually Impaired Program

As a visual arts institution, the Museum has a responsibility to make art accessible to all. In our Visually Impaired Program (VIP) tours, specially-trained docents present the Museum’s collection and selected special exhibitions through multisensory education. Using verbal descriptions, tactile models based on original artworks, specially selected sculptures, and music, these tours allow visitors to experience art in a way they may not be able to on their own.
