I almost did not go in. I knew we were going to spend an hour in the dark walking through several rooms pretending to be blind but when it came time to actually do it I panicked and almost backed out. I am glad I toughed it out and finished. Our blind guide was very helpful and comforting. In the... More

This place is great. I think every teenager should go there so they know how it feels like not having daylight in your life.. After visiting I have a complete different view on blind people. Also it's super fun to go to the dark bar where you get served by blind people and don't see anything. Very very interesting and... More

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.
