For Visitors Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

Sign Language Interpretation

If you would like to schedule a tour with an ASL Guide, please contact Louis Abbene-Meagley, Education Coordinator at abbenemeagley@sitesantafe.org.

Hearing Loop for Public Programs
SITE Santa Fe’s auditorium is equipped with state-of-the art audio technology and the Hearing Loop system. The Hearing Loop sends sound directly to the telecoil receiver in a user’s hearing device. The system eliminates most background noise and greatly improves reception of speech and music. SITE’s Hearing Loop system is made possible by Mary Costello.
