Info on sensory gardens

I recently put a request for suggestions about creating a sensory garden on the GEM list (GEM is the list for the discussion of issues in museum education in the UK).

Below are some websites that people suggested I look at:

Read all about it

The “How we read” exhibition that I wrote about in October 2014 is now online. It explores the history of reading technologies that have been designed for blind people over the past two centuries. Videos, photos and sound recordings are available in the “Gallery” section. If you want to know what an Optophone sounded like now is your chance.
