Blind and Low Vision

Touch Tours

Touch Tours for those who are blind and low vision are available on select dates. Trained educators use detailed verbal descriptions and hands-on objects from our teaching collection to provide tactile tours of the museum’s many exhibition halls within the classroom. Each tour will focus on a different exhibition hall and topic.

Upcoming program dates are:

Saturday, October 5, 2019 | 10–11:30 a.m.

Saturday, December 7, 2019 | 10–11:30 a.m.

All Touch Tours take place at HMNS Hermann Park, 5555 Hermann Park Drive. Pre-registration is required for this program. To RSVP for the next Touch Tour, email or call 713-639-4620.

Large print labels are available for visitors with low vision. These labels are available to download here. You can download the PDF to your phone or tablet to use during your museum visit. Currently, large print labels are only available for the Morian Hall of Paleontology; however, we’ll offer additional halls soon!
