    Sports & Vision Tour

    2:00pm, Wednesday – Sunday

    Just in time for the Super Bowl, we are offering a new gallery tour where we journey into the world of professional and Olympic athletes. Learn how athletes’ vision affects the game and how sports can affect their eyes. Led by museum staff or a trained docent, the Sports & Vision Tour will cover facts and stories from all over the wide world of sports, from baseball to gymnastics to mountain climbing.

They all stand in a gray museum gallery with gray walls.2:00pm, Wednesday - Sunday
