For Visitors with Vision or Hearing Impairments

The Nasher offers several tools that we hope will enhance your visit.

Verbal Descriptions of Artworks

Audio recordings describing the appearance of selected artworks are available on the Nasher App.

The Nasher's tactile resources, large print and braille binders and assistive listening devices will be temporarily unavailable for health and safety reasons. These resources will return once it is safe to share them with our visitors again.
