For deaf and hard of hearing visitors: the Unlimited van Abbe tour in sign language
A few times a year one of our deaf guides will give a free tour in sign language through one of the exhibitions of the museum. We visit a different section of the museum each time. All tours are in Dutch sign language.
The guided tours take place on the dates below, visiting a different exhibition each tour:
- 6 February 2022: Parallel Lives, Paralel Aesthetics by León Ferrari and Gülsün Karamustafa
- 1 May 2022: A Lasting Truth Is Change
- 4 September 2022: collection display Delinking and Relinking
It's also possible to book Special Guests tours at different moments through email@example.com.
