American Sign Language Tours
Deaf Guides offer American Sign Language tours of the museum's collection specifically designed for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. These tours afford all of our visitors a chance to learn about the cultures, history, religions, and sacred art of the Himalayan region.
Tours meet in the spiral lobby of the museum and last about one hour. If you have questions, please contact the Manager of Visitor Experience and Access Programs at 212.620.5000 x354.
