Edo Pop: The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints Audio Tour

Guiding patrons through each section of the exhibition, using one item from each section as an example, this tour is an excellent opportunity for patrons who can't attend one of our regularly scheduled docents tours to get an insider's take on this unique exhibition.
