The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is expanding its free offerings. 

The AFMA announced it will now offer dedicated guided tours for guests who need American Sign Language as well as with guides who speak Spanish.

A gallery tour for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's will take place on Sept. 26. Another tour for people with visual impairments will be on Nov. 7. Guests with sensory sensitivities can enjoy the museum with reduced gallery lighting and a quiet area Oct. 10.

"As 'America's most inviting art museum,' AMFA has a commitment to accessibility and inclusivity," Spencer Jansen, AMFA's deputy director, said in a statement. "We continue to actively address barriers for guests and provide them with free solutions so they can enjoy all the museum has to offer." 

The AMFA's full schedule of accessible programming is available on the museum's website.
