Facilities for hearing impaired visitors

Sign interpreted events

There is a signed event programmed once a month, this is either a gallery talk or an eyeOpener tour, given by a member of Museum staff or a visiting lecturer.

If a group has a particular interest in an area of the Museum's collection we will endeavour (though cannot guarantee) to arrange for a private talk with an interpreter. Please contact the Access Manager with at least six weeks notice.

We can also arrange sign interpretation for specific events and study days. This should be requested at the time of booking and at least six weeks in advance.

Induction loops

Induction loops operate in the Clore Centre and the Information Desk. Portable induction loops are also available for most eyeOpener tours.

Assistance dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome. Dog bowls are available from the Information Desk.

Temporary exhibitions

For paying exhibitions, concessions are available for disabled visitors. A companion ticket is also provided free of charge. Please contact the Information Desk.
