Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or have low vision to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth- and twenty- first-century American art. Explore the Whitney’s collection or special exhibitions with a highly skilled museum educator trained to provide vivid, detailed verbal description of the works on display, while experiencing a selection
of objects through touch. Manual wheelchairs, stools, and assistive listening devices are available for all touch programs.
These free, 90-minute tours take place when the galleries are closed to the general public. Tours are held monthly as well as by request with three weeks advance notice.
