Join us for a fantastic and enriching tour for people who are blind or visually impaired!
“Touch History” is a free, accessible tour of the Library of Congress’s beautiful Thomas Jefferson Building that brings its details to life for visitors through their sense of touch. The tours are led by specially trained docents who use vivid language to describe the building’s history and architecture. Tours begin at 9:30 a.m. and last about one hour.
The tour is open to the public. Participants are advised to check in at the information desk located on the ground floor of the Jefferson Building. Tour dates are listed in this event, but are also available by request. For more information and to reserve your spot, contact us by email at VEO@loc.gov or by phone at (202) 707-9779.
