Our free Multisensory Tours welcome adults who are blind or partially sighted to the museum. Learn about selected works from the Albright-Knox’s collection and special exhibitions on the first Saturday of each month from 10:30 to 11:30 am, and on the second Wednesday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Tour themes change monthly and include in-depth verbal descriptions, touch materials, and other sensory activities. Weekday tours in the galleries are followed by a hands-on artmaking experience in the classrooms.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register, or for more information, please contact Access & Community Programs Coordinator Karen Duval at 716.270.8249 or
