certain aspect of the Museum's collection. You put on the infrared
earphones the museum provides you, and you perhaps receive a paper
or brochure that explains to you where in the museum all the
material relative to an author or subject is (here it's the town of Ożarów), and you follow the directions provided for the
tour and then proceed from room to room, from station to station.
