I just found this sweet blog post: Great things about being blind. Museums.
“Museum staff have often gone above and beyond to allow me to touch things others could not. Unlocking cabinets and letting me go behind barriers. Letting me touch their period costumes. Talking to me about history, how artifacts were found, and more. I am always so happy when things are made accessible for me. The fortress of Louisberg in Nova Scotia was particularly wonderful. They allowed me to touch everything and took me around until I finally had to tell them that I just couldn’t absorb one more thing. “
