New ExhibitsChild In A Strange Country is our major traveling show, exploring education for people who are blind and visually impaired through the lens of social activist and author Helen Keller. Ever wonder how people make the best use of their remaining vision? Some use electronic magnifiers developed originally by a mathematician named Sam Genensky in California in the 1960s. Our newest exhibit explores the history of closed circuit television (CCTV) and modern electronic magnifiers.
