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.

All Touch Tours take place at HMNS Hermann Park, 5555 Hermann Park Drive. Pre-registration is required for this program. To RSVP for Touch Tours, please email or call 713-639-4620 with your name, contact information, and date you would like to attend.
