A guided tour past the artworks of the museum, for the blind and visually impaired. Participants are allowed to touch the artworks: and they come to life through music, literature and scent. The guided tour is free.

The multi-sensory tour of 8 September takes place in the new exhibition Eyewitnesses of Conflict: Goya, Beuys, Dumas, a poignant exhibition with work by artists who were eyewitnesses of war and conflict. The exhibtion shows how artists from different periods transformed their traumatic experiences, precise observations of injustices and satirical social criticism into powerful images. They provide material for reflection about the conflicts which surround us today. 

Guide dogs are welcome in the museum. If there are still spots that have not been booked, other interested visitors are welcome too.
