Deaf-friendly tour - Hard Hat Tour

12 September 2020

Our specialist deaf-friendly tours are designed to welcome visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Join us for a special deaf-friendly tour giving you a sneak preview of BCLM: Forging Ahead project.

Over the next 2 years (2020-2022), we’re creating a major new historic 1940s-1960s development, new learning spaces and a brand new visitor centre. Meet the team who will present objects and stories and share plans for the project. We will then put on our hard hats and take a behind-the-scenes look at the development so far.

Join our Deaf Friendly tours facilitated by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. The BSL interpreter works alongside one of our friendly costumed demonstrators who will support the tour by spoken interpretation.

Specialist tours take place once a month on a Saturday from 2pm -3.30pm.

Each tour begins with an introductory welcome to the Museum in the main visitor reception at 2pm.
