Tours
American Sign Language

Join us for live, interactive virtual tours in American Sign Language (ASL) for visitors who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Combining art, social history and personal observation, each virtual ASL tour is conducted in American Sign Language only; no voice interpretation provided. Due to limited capacity, we do not allow ASL students to attend.

DETAILS & SCHEDULING

Each Virtual ASL Tour is a free, interactive experience facilitated in real time by the museum’s Deaf Educator through Zoom. Virtual ASL Tours are designed for participants who are Deaf or hard of hearing to contribute to the conversation, share their thoughts, and learn together.

Tours begin at 11:00 am and will be preceded by a “virtual coffee social” from 10:30 a.m. until the start of the tour. Come, chat, and stay for the tour!

There is no cost for this tour, but due to limited capacity, we ask that ASL students not attend. Our tour will be in American Sign Language only; no voice interpretation provided.
Virtual ASL Tours are 45 – 60 minutes, depending on participation and discussion.

  • Participants take part through the chat function and/or signed discussion
  • One household may participate per confirmation link
  • Limit of 15 devices per virtual ASL tour time
  • FREE, but reservations are required
