The Belgian Jewish Museum offers guided visits for partially sighted people

The Belgian Jewish Museum now offers multi-sensory guided visits for partially sighted people, as part of its “Accessible Jewish Culture” project. This was confirmed by the Museum said in a press release on Wednesday evening. These visits, that should allow partially sighted people to discover the Jewish culture, are also open to all other visitors. Several themes are on offer to the public. During the visit titled “A sensory journey through Jewish culture”, partially sighted people can follow an exhibition through a synagogue, discover Jewish history in Belgium, Jewish professions, etc.

A workshop called “See and touch Chagall” will allow the public to discover textured works based on paintings by the Jewish artist. From the 24th of April to the 24th of August, a reflexive exhibition on photo representation issues will also be on offer, as part of the “See Henri Cartier-Bresson – Photograher” theme. Finally, a tactile exhibition will be open to the public from the 6th of September.

The Museum will be open until the 6th of September. It will then close for renovation until 2018.

The Belgian Jewish Museum was the target of an attack on the 2th of May 2014. Four people died during the assault. Medhi Nemmouche is the main suspect, and he was arrested on the 30th of May in Marseille.
