Deaf and hearing impaired visitors

  • An induction loop is fitted in reception.
  • One way of giving information to visitors involves using audioguides, hand held devices that give audio commentary on the exhibits. The audioguides have a wide-ranging volume control but if required, we do have headphones that plug into the audioguides to make them easier to hear. For visitors with hearing aids we have a portable induction loop, worn around the neck, to improve access to the audioguides. Both are available on request but subject to availability.
  • Written transcripts of the audioguides are also available on request.
  • All audiovisual presentations in the museum have subtitles.
