Carrollton: Please Touch! Multisensory Tour

This October, in celebration of World Blindness Awareness Month, the Museum invites blind or partially sighted visitors of all ages and their families to explore the historic house in a multisensory way; through touch, sound and smell. Audio tours tailored for individuals with visual impairment will provide both detailed descriptions of the home and contextual information about rural life in late 19th century north Texas. Visitors will be able to examine objects firsthand from the Museum's Teaching Collection alongside other touchable materials to ensure a truly tactile experience. Pre-registration is required. Register by October 10.
