Every visitor, regardless of their ability to see, should have the opportunity to experience aviation history. That’s why we developed these docent-led "Touch the Sky" tours to showcase the history, design and science behind select aircraft and help vision-impaired visitors experience a variety of aircraft up close. During the 90-minute tour, participants wear white gloves to touch the aircraft surfaces; this helps them to understand how the aircraft were engineered and how their designs impacted aviation history.
