The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
The MET is committed to making its collections, programs, information, and services accessible and inclusive to all audiences. For visitors with visual impairments, they offer touch tours, verbal imaging tours, large print and Braille labels, and workshops. Touch and Explore is an offsite program bringing art education to schools with visually impaired children. A range of programs, including gallery talks, lectures, and family programs, are Sign Language interpreted on a regular basis. Lectures with Real Time captioning are also offered regularly. Discoveries are a weekend family program for people of all ages with developmental disabilities. The MET won the 2003 Museum Accessibility Award from the American Association of Museums for its Picture This workshop, a museum program designed for people with visual impairments.
