Hangar Y's new open-ear multi-sensory trail! 

La traversée is an audio tour of the Hangar Y park, based on bone conduction* technology, using lightweight headphones worn in front of the ears.

You don't just hear the sounds and voices in your ears, you feel them physically too...Ready for a new discovery of contemporary sculpture?

* bone conduction offers an accessible listening experience for the hearing and visually impaired.
