What is it like to be blind or partially sighted? You can read about it or someone can tell you about it from their own experience, but during a visit to muZIEum (muSEEum) you will experience it yourself. Enter a world in which your other senses - hearing, smell, touch and taste - suddenly play a far more important role than you are used to.

Emerged into total darkness, led around by a blind guide, we experienced scenes from the perspective of those who cannot see. It was an eye opening experience for all of us, but we had fun too! Highest rating I can give.

A 'day in the life' of a blind person. A set of everyday locations so completely closed off from the light that you have to move through them without the use of your eyes.

Walking through the absolute dark, you really experience the difficulties of having to trust your other senses. Even in the dark you are looking to see something, feeling awkward what to do with your eyes otherwise! Tours in English no problem!

This museum has some great exhibitions and is definitely worth checking out. However very very few of the descriptions are written in English.

This is a very special (never before) experience. It is so strange, and at the same time educational, inspirational and exceptional.

Response from muZIEumNijmegen | Property representative |
Good morning, Thanks for your request! The tour takes about 60 minutes and it takes place in the dark. So we don't tink it's suitable for a baby or little child to be in the dark for a longer period of time. Best wishes... More
