The Uganda Museum is located in Kampala, Uganda. It displays and exhibits ethnological, natural-historical and traditional life collections of Uganda's cultural heritage. It was founded in 1908, after Governor George Wilson called for "all articles of interest" on Uganda to be procured. This tour will be guided in International Sign Language by Noah as well as in English by Rosemary!
At Infinity Ideas Network, we envision to create and make available equal job opportunities for Deaf and Disabled young people for their sustainable social and economic standards of living. WHY DEAF? In Uganda, they are among the most stigmatized people who often live in isolation and are excluded with from their communities, from the education system, healthcare and other vital services. Most times they are hidden away by their families as they consider this as a bad omen. If you would like to contact us then please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Kampala with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 60 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Kampala. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

A lovely relaxed tour of the museum, with Rosemary sharing her insights about Ugandan history and culture.

This was their first tour and I loved it! Yes there were technical problems but they didn't distract me from enjoying the tour. I look forward to other tours with them.

Welcome to the HeyGo family! I hope we see lots of you both for a long time :) I love the idea of having the tour conducted in sign language! The museum was very interesting and I can tell you were both very knowledgeable. Agree with the suggestions below: Begin with setting the context with general information and start from the outside and just a bit more practice with the gimbal. But I know this is your first tour and you will improve a lot very soon. Great first job and thanks for bringing us this lovely destination that the world needs to see.

Things will get easier with more experience. Yours is the first tour on HG that I've seen that used sign language. Keep it up!

Lots of interesting information, and awesome to see a bilingual tour offered in sign language and English. Rosemary and Noah finished well, in spite of some glitches along the way -- all understandable for a first tour. With their vibrant personalities and passion to share Uganda, future tours will be great. May I offer a few suggestions for next time? 1. A bit of context about Uganda's history and peoples at the beginning would help us better appreciate what we are seeing in the museum.2. I agree with the suggestion made during the tour to begin outside. Let us first see the Kampala skyline, so that we really have the feeling of going back in history when we enter the museum.3. Sometimes hold the gimbal still for a bit longer, whether to allow us to take a postcard, or so we can read a placard you have pointed out. Thank you again for bringing Uganda to us!
