For blind or partially sighted visitors the keyboard is equipped with large numbers and Braille symbols. For wearers of hearing aids and cochlear implants the sound is transmitted directly to the hearing aid with the help of an induction loop system.

An Audio Tour of the Museum

Clementine and Paul are very curious. They look around the museum carefully and go close up to the pictures. Suddenly they hear whispers. The voices get louder and louder – wild battle sounds blast from the Obertor. One by one the pictures and objects come to life and tell their stories. And what stories they are! Funny … sad … thought-provoking … exciting. The audio guide invites all children to explore the pictures and exhibit objects in a special audio tour. Curious grown-ups are welcome to come along, too!

 

This audio guide is a media education cooperation project between the school board of the Neuss Rhine district and the Clemens Sels Museum Neuss.
