Tours
American Sign Language

Join us for monthly 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 museum staff through Zoom, an online video meeting platform. 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.

Virtual ASL tours are presented via Zoom on the fourth Saturday of the month at 1pm CST. A new topic or work of art is highlighted each month, but every conversation is unique.

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

The day of the tour, you will receive an email reminder to log into your museum account where you will see a live Virtual ASL Tour link. Click the Zoom link to connect 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time. To provide the best experience for registered participants, please do not share the link.
