An Exhibition Tour at the Design Museum Access Tour

Designer Maker User Multisensory Tour

Join this multisensory tour of the Design Museum’s permanent exhibition, Designer Maker User, for blind and partially sighted visitors.

What to expect

This tour will introduce several works in the museum’s permanent exhibition, exploring user interaction with design and how users influence design development. An example of the designs we will examine are the Valentine manual typewriter and the Xbox controller.

The tour will conclude with a workshop session that focuses on designs that have a positive impact on the lives of disabled users. We will use this opportunity to discuss innovative designs specifically used by visually impaired people including sound balls and talking calculators.
