All visits are FREE and can include tours of the factory floor and recording studio, as well as entry to the Museum galleries and participation in Museum workshops, programs, and events.
- Tours of the Factory include the braille production process, the "Talking Book" studio and production area, and the product display area where visitors can explore educational materials designed for people with visual impairments.
- The Museum's hands-on interactive exhibits focus on the story of education for the blind and are designed to spark enthusiasm for learning, admiration for industry and invention, and recognition that all people can learn at high levels.
Museum workshops are available for organized groups of twenty or fewer on Saturdays and afternoons by appointment. Each workshop explores a specific topic relating to the education of the blind. Workshops involve hands-on experiential learning and can be customized to meet individual needs.
Bring the resources of our Museum to your classroom through our two traveling kits. The kits include background information, artifacts, books, DVDs and more. Kits can be used before or after a visit—or on their own. Instructions for using the kit include engaging activities that develop logical thinking and analysis skills, as well as appreciation for people who are "differently-abled."
