Free School Tours
The Jewish Museum is pleased to offer 25 FREE tours to schools with special needs students. Free tours will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis over the course of the 2013–2014 school year. Please call 212-423-3256 or e-mail: to make a reservation. There is a limit of two free tours per school.

School Tours
All school tours can be adapted for students with special needs. Tours can be tailored to meet the needs of visitors with developmental disabilities, as well as blind and partially sighted students. Assistive listening devices with neck loops and headsets are also available.

Touch Tours
Students who are blind or partially sighted may participate in a thematic touch tour. This tactile experience allows students to explore the collection using replicas, fabric samples, and raised drawings. Tours include a gallery program - along with a hands-on studio art project - and focus on either art in the ancient world or the modern Jewish experience. Educators are also trained to assist blind or partially sighted students using verbal imaging techniques.

Professional Development for Special Education Teachers
Special education teachers are invited to attend our educator workshops free of charge.

Please call 212-423-3256 or e-mail: to schedule a tour, register for a workshop, or for general information about the Museum’s access programs.

Made possible by J.E. and Z.B. Butler Foundation, Newman’s Own Foundation, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and other donors.
