Join us for a celebration of braille at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Can you crack the code and find the answers to our braille quiz?

Join us at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow, on Saturday to celebrate National Braille Week.

Our family braille trail is free and each entrant will receive a prize on handing back their completed quiz.

The aim of the braille trail is to raise awareness of braille by inviting people to decode questions written in printed braille and find the answer in the gallery’s artwork.

National Braille Week aims to raise awareness of the importance of braille and other alternative formats that open up the written world to people with vision impairment.

Braille is a tactile reading and writing system used by blind and visually impaired people who cannot access print materials.  It uses raised dots to represent the letters of the print alphabet.

The braille trail event will be available from 11am-4pm.
