Virtual Docent Tour

For national and international visitors unable to visit the museum in-person, become a Friend of the Museum of Deaf History, Arts & Culture to gain access to and view multiple times throughout the year of Friendship the full Virtual Tour available on the Friends Portal.

The docent guides in the Virtual Tour are Deaf and use American Sign Language, hence voice interpretation and English captioning is provided.

The self-guided tour begins with a 12 minute introductory video, "A Different Way to Hear". Visitors will then take a stroll through the Chuck Baird Art Gallery. Finally, visitors will dive into Deaf history and culture, a look at the history of a typical school for the Deaf in America, with a variety of historical artifacts along the way. 


Please plan one to two hours for the self-guided tour. For groups of 10 or more visitors, please arrange a private guided tour. 

Admission is free.  Donations are encouraged.
