See the schedule of events presented in Azerbaijan Sign Language with and without voice interpretation, as well as events with Sign Language interpretation.
Azerbaijan Sign Language interpretation is available free of charge for other Museum events or guided group tours with two weeks' notice, subject to the availability of interpreters. Voice interpretation may be requested for programs in ASL only.
VISITORS WITH A VISUAL IMPAIRMENT
If you require a guide to assist you around the building, please book in advance. Unfortunately, assistance cannot be guaranteed to visitors who do not book in advance.
The tactile display is available on the 1st and 2nd floors of the Museum’s permanent exhibition. These touchable copies of exhibits are weaved by the Museum's Traditional Technologies Department. The Museum implements a mixed technique of combining flat-woven and pile weavings that enable one to feel the carpet ornaments and their structure through touch. Braille and audio recordings accompany exhibits.
