Access Programs

The DAM welcomes all visitors and we strive to be accessible to everyone. We offer the following programs for visitors with disabilities and are happy to discuss how we can accommodate your individual needs.

For information about accessibility at the museum, please visit our Accessibility page. To learn about upcoming access programs and events, see the Related Exhibitions & Events box on this page.

Tactile Tables

Tactile Tables are a regularly scheduled, bimonthly opportunity to experience art in a hands-on way. They are located in a different gallery of the museum each session, and are facilitated by specially trained docents. These tables are free with admission and are open to all visitors who desire a multisensory, hands-on experience with art, including those visitors who are blind and low vision.

Tactile Tours

For visitors who are blind or have low vision, we offer tours featuring touchable materials and description. Free with admission. Please request two weeks in advance by calling 720-913-0074 or e-mailing access@denverartmuseum.org

American Sign Language Programs

Sign language interpretation can be scheduled for any museum tour, program, or event with two weeks’ notice. Shorter notice requests accommodated if possible. To make arrangements, call 720-913-0074 or e-mail access@denverartmuseum.org.

 

Art & About Tours

Art & About Tours are designed for visitors with early-stage Alzheimer’s or dementia and their care partners. Experience and discuss art together on a tour led by a specially trained guide. Art & About Tours are offered every other month. See the Related Exhibitions & Events box at right for upcoming events. Museum admission and the tour are free. Space is limited; Reserve by contacting Sharon Stokes at the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter at sstokes1@alz.org or 303-813-1669.
