There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house

Touch Tour for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Morris-Jumel Mansion's educational and curatorial staff will lead a touch tour of the Mansion specially designed for children and adults who are blind or otherwise visually impaired. We'll use materials and fabrics exactly like those adorning the house to give attendees a vivid sense of the furnishings and cultural objects that surround them. We're especially excited to utilize Dutch wax cottons -- the very same material used by world-renowned artist Yinka Shonibare MBE, whose work Morris-Jumel is exhibiting till August 31st. The touch tour is free with museum admission, though reservations are recommended. To RSVP call 212-923-8008 or email
