Metzner was participating in the first organized architectural tour of the museum for blind people. The tours, which will be offered four times a year but can also be booked on other occasions, are geared specifically to what a blind person would be most able to appreciate in the building known for its tilted planes and narrowing spaces and designed by American architect Daniel Libeskind.
