Visual Description Tours

Visual Description Tours

On the last Friday of each month, a Visual Description tour in Stories of Cinema or the special exhibition will be offered at 2:00pm.

On the last Friday of every month, a Visual Description Tour within the museum’s Stories of Cinema exhibition, or additional galleries, will be offered at 2pm to align with our ongoing Stories of Cinema Drop-In Tours, which are offered every Friday from 1pm to 3pm.  

An educator will provide a verbal overview for visitors who are blind or low vision. Visual Description is a way of using words to represent the visual world, of helping people form mental images of what they cannot see. All are welcome to join this gallery conversation. 

Meet in the Sidney Poitier Grand Lobby. Capacity is limited.
