A female guest with blonde hair stands in front of the "A New Generation" panel. She is holding an iPad on which she is watching a video of a sign language interpreter translating the museum's audio guide using American Sign Language.

Deaf and Hard-of-hearing Visitors

An American Sign Language (ASL) translation of the exhibit audio guide is available for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing guests. A limited number of the ASL guides are available in the Visitors Center on a first-come, first-served basis. All videos in the permanent exhibit are captioned in English.
