People on a touch tour

Visitors with vision loss and their companions are invited to explore the Museum through touch and verbal description. The program will feature touch experiences in eight galleries, including a chance to touch the largest Sphinx in North America. Museum staff will be stationed around the building to guide visitors who are blind or visually impaired through the tactile experiences, give verbal descriptions, and offer wayfinding assistance. This event is open to the public. All visitors will be able to touch replica artifacts. Only visitors with visual impairment will be able to touch ancient artifacts.

Visitors with vision loss who require or prefer sighted guides are encouraged to bring an assistant or companion.
