Each audio guide provides highlights and commentary on special exhibits, as well as commentary on the Miho Museum’s permanent collection. The guides also explain the highlights of the museum’s architecture (designed by I.M. Pei), and let visitors listen to selections from the Grammy Award-winning album of music inspired by the Miho Museum (performed and recorded here). The buttons on the guide are very simple to use, enabling easy operation by all visitors. Each guide has two headphone jacks, enabling use by two visitors at once.
