What does art feel like? AGO Multisensory Tour - Toronto

The AGO multisensory tours provides an opportunity for visitors who are blind or partially sighted, to experience the richness and diversity of their art collection. Tours evolve, so are not the same each time. Explore the AGO's collection with a highly skilled art gallery educator, trained to provide vivid, detailed verbal description of the works on display, while participants can experience a selection of objects through touch, smell, or sound.
