About Verbal Description and Sensory Tours
The Rubin Museum offers Verbal Description and Sensory Tours for visitors who are blind or partially sighted on the first Saturday of every month. These free tours, which include museum admission, are one hour in length and take visitors on a journey that weaves together the culture, history, religion, and art of the Himalayas. 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 such as sculptures, art materials, woodblocks, and ritual implements.
