British Sign Language videos now available Hull and East Riding Museum

British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation is now available in the medieval gallery at the Hull and East Riding Museum of Archaeology.

A total of 36 videos have been made from each of the information panels in the gallery and are available through QR codes for personal devices, as well as on tablets that can be hired for free at the front desk.

All videos can also be viewed on Hull Museums YouTube channel.

The interpretations were created with David and Gemma Webb from local organisation Webb BSL and complete the recent improvements to the gallery.

Portfolio Holder for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Rob Pritchard said:

“Hull Museums is so pleased to be able to offer BSL interpretation for the medieval gallery and hoping to explore more BSL interpretation across our other sites.

“The team is really looking forward to welcoming BSL users to the museum to try out this new resource and finding out more about the medieval history of our local area in a way that is far more accessible to them.”

Nestled in the Museums Quarter in the heart of the old town, visitors to the Hull and East Riding Museum can journey through 235 million years of history of the local area. The museum is open seven days a week 10am – 4.30pm and is free to enter.
