Local Museum Offers Tours and More for People with Low Vision
The Rubin Museum, located at 150 W. 17th Street between 6th & 7th Avenues in Manhattan, offers verbal description and sensory tours for visitors who are blind or partially sighted. These free tours are one hour in length and are included with Museum admission. Museum guides are specially trained to lead these tours, which allow participants to form visualizations of the art through close, careful descriptions as well as touch objects like sculptures, art materials, woodblocks, and ritual implements.
