Frankfurt is a wonderful city full of museums and great old building. But the bet thing we did was the Dialog Museum which simulates being blind by walking through many different sensory experiences. You are not blindfolded, but led around totally dark rooms by a guide who, himself is a blind person. Using a cane, his voice and sometimes a... More

Dialogue in the Dark museums have been popping up all over the world. Until recently, I had never heard of it. While visiting a friend in Frankfurt, she and her family took me to it. To sum up my experience in only two words read the title. I was blown away! Dialogue in the Dark is a museum that is... More

My husband and I visited the museum yesterday and loved the experience! It was in fact the highlight of our time in Frankfurt. I don't want to give too much away so I will just say it's an experience that will make you think and view the world in a different way. Our guide Andy was the perfect guide! He... More

I felt a bit apprehensive when I heard that it would be pitch black inside the museum. We were a group of 7 people but one of us decided, in the first room, that she would like to leave since she felt very uncomfortable. It definitely does take some getting used to and I was close to leaving at first.... More

This is a great alternative to a traditional museum experience. It is fully immersive and you spend roughly an hour and a half with a guide learning what it is like to be blind. You spend this time in complete darkness and completely dependent on the tour guide, which some other guests found difficult at first. You travel around different... More

I can highly recommend the Dialog Museum in Frankfurt! It was a very new and different experience to walk around in everyday situations at the museum with a blind guide without being able to see anything at all. We were in a small group of just 7 persons and even if some of us maybe were a bit anxious at... More

The cost is high (plus you'll pay more for a tour in English), the staff are indifferent/rude and the experience is underwhelming and uninspiring. Can't really recommend it.

I went with some friends in August 2013. We really didn't know what to expect, but you are taken through a "foreign country" which is in pitch pitch black rooms. It was so dark my eyes hurt from trying to see in the dark. Our guide was a blind man. We met him on the inside so didn't see him... More

I visited this museum with a friend, you have to book up to a couple of weeks in advance. Our time slot was running 20 mins late, so give yourself extra time. The experience is fabulous, we went on the 90 min english tour and visited a streeet and went on a boat ride. It makes you realise how vulnerabel... More
