Due to popular demand, Seeing without Sight: A Sensory Exploration at the Hunt Museum returns for a second run!

Seeing without Sight is a multi-sensory exhibition which enables visitors to experience a selection of Hunt Museum objects through tactile displays and audio descriptions. It has been delivered through an inclusive co-creation process with persons with visual impairment and confirms the museum’s commitment to expanding access and inclusion for people with disabilities.

The museum is delighted to share that Seeing without Sight won the Inclusive Event Award at The Heritage Council Awards 2023. The exhibition has also recently been shortlisted for an AONTAS STAR Award in the category Adult Learning Initiatives that support social inclusion.

This is a free exhibition. We look forward to welcoming you. If you or any of your party have access requirements, please email Maria at maria@huntmuseum.com or telephone 061 312 833.
