Have blind faith! Imagine that all the lights go out! If you join us, you will also be able to understand what life is like without one of the senses that provides us with the most information, to live without your sight. At this exhibition you will be accompanied by blind or partially sighted people on a journey that will change your life. Interesting? Strange? Alien? Or ... perhaps natural? Could an hour of blindness open your eyes? At The Invisible Exhibition, the participants obtain information exclusively through touch, hearing, smell and their sense of balance. This way, in the new situation caused by the loss of sight and despite the difficulties, they can experience that the world can be still beautiful without this key sense. The exhibition aims to bring the world of those with and without sight closer and teaches through positive experiences how we can help and in what ways we can understand them. The invisible journey takes place in the company of a blind guide in sites that are specially furnished, faithful to life and are completely dark. Participation is in groups starting every 15 minutes. « less

And a little more than this: we do our best to ensure that you have a unique experience during your visit, above and beyond just seeing the layout. Interactive screens show original photos of the sights on the layout, so you can compare what we have done in miniature. You can control the ongoing traffic here and there and bring to life all sorts of actions, motion, sound and light effects. We pay a special attention to our smallest guests: they are welcome at the MINIVERSUM playhouse with various creative activities corresponding to their age (and free of additional charge), whilst older visitors can recover from the astonishing experiences of the exhibition in our cafe. With its huge monitor wall, our control room is a stunner in its own right, where technically minded guests can observe the operation of the entire MINIVERSUM closely. As a matter of fact, it is difficult to put into words or show on pictures what you are going to see. Come and experience MINIVERSUM with us, we will surely take your breath away! Let yourself be enchanted and you will grow to discover that it is "just like the real thing", and how crazy and miniscule things we could construct in the mini world of MINIVERSUM. « less

The Classical Antiquities Collection embraces the entire period of antiquity. The Old Masters’ Collection is represented by around three thousand paintings of the most important eras of European painting from the 13th till the end of the 18th century.
