About
Two exhibitions in one location. The first is a journey in the dark in which because of the complete darkness you will feel like a blind person. This metamorphosis has several advantages – first of all you realize that in such a world a blind person feels like a fish in the water. And you? At the beginning you are afraid, then you tame, and finally you realize what power your other senses have. Then you realize that blind people are not disabled at all, it’s just naive to think that you who see are better. The second is a maze of colors, games of lights and fun. How to build a lake of sand or a mountain, or maybe create a tsunami? How to leave the shadow behind? As if with ordinary glasses it would seem to turn the world upside down, and maybe check what the shadow of the strange sculpture hides or turn the sound into shape and color. Both experiences include our fantastic guides, who bring science and emotion into your world in a joyful and colorful way.

We visited Womai and booked the ‘Into the Darkness exhibition’.

It was honestly one of the most thought provoking & insightful experiences that I have ever been on.

The tour guide, Pawel was extremely knowledgeable & passionate about delivering the experience. He gave us a full understanding of the difficulties that a blind person may experience on a day to day basis. Pawel is multilingual and can offer tours in multiple languages, including English.

I would throughly recommend visiting.

Dear Nathan, We are very pleased that you enjoyed our exhibition. We do our best to make sure that your experience at our Centre can be remembered by you for a long time. Paweł speaks many languages and he is more than happy to use them when meeting foreign visitors. We will pass on your kind words to him! We also invite you to our second exhibition "Into the Light". Best Regards, Team WOMAI

Me and my partner decided to do both the light and dark exhibition for under £10 each - both of which were absolutely fascinating. The dark room offered a completely unique experience, testing the very senses you soon realise you take for granted every day. The light exhibition incorporated science, illusion and stunning visuals to create a wonderful interactive visit, appropriate for all ages, which not only continuously impresses you creating anticipation for what’s to come next, but also allows for great photo/video opportunities! To make it even better, the staff were truly interested in each exhibit as well as being super friendly and informative. We stayed for around 2 hours, but would have stayed for much longer if we didn’t have a plane to catch! :)

Dear Luce, Many thanks for you wonderful review. WOW, I will pass it to the team that will be incredibly happy to hear that you enjoyed visit to WOMAI so much. Indeed, the dark room is the journey into your inner part, and as stated rightly by you, we discover the senses and their usage we do not think about on the daily bases. We are very lucky to have team like Jakub and Damian and their passion for science, learning and development. If possible please share with us some photos/videos at our email address womai.cracow@gmail.com if you do not mind us to use them on our social media page. Wishing you fantastic 2020. WOMAI TEAM

If you're reading this review, please go ahead and visit this museum. We did "into the darkness" tour and I would recommend it to EVERYONE. I plan on coming back to Kraków and revisiting the museum to see the other exhibition too! I also want to thank our guide Pawel for being amazing, kind, knowledgeable, approachable and for having a great sense of humor!
I'm telling everyone in Croatia about this museum!

I had another vision of the exhibition when I bought tickets, but this was an eye-opening experience for me, and “into the darkness” exceeded my expectations! I found out more about life of the blind person, and that had a great impact and changed my vision of the world, and made me more tolerant towards other people.
I would definitely recommend visiting this place.

Special thanks to our guide Kamil, he was so nice and explained everything during the exhibition, and also answered all of our questions

Today I have visited Womai with my wife and two kids and I must say that I had a lot of fun! On the dark side we have experienced a life of a blind person. Our guide Natalia is a violinist and a flutist and she let us into her world which is so different from our daily life. And on the bright side we learned so much about science, optics, color, music and we had lots of fun challenging our own perception and senses in a fantastic and friendy atmosphere. We will be back for more when they add new experiences. Good job :-)! I am seriously impressed !

Indeed our guides in both exhibitions are incredibly skillful: acting, paying and enjoying the passion for people. They love to share their worlds both "Dark" and "Light" and it is meaningful for them if they manage to inspire people. We put all our hearts and souls into WOMAI and reading reviews like yours make us inspired and wanting to work more and harder. WOMAI TEAM :)

There are two parts to this experience. The first is entering the world of the blind. It is very interesting to explore in complete darkness. The second part is a study of light and sound. This has a number of interesting exhibits that are both entertaining and educational.

Dear Valued Guests, We are so happy that you and your son have decided to visit WOMAI's both exhibitions: "Into the dark" and "Into the light". We are even more happy that we satisfied your appetites for knowledge from the area of physics (light and sound) but also from the area of the world of people who were born into the darkness. We hope to see you again as being your guide on both ends was a pure pleasure. Kind regards, WOMAI TEAM

Today we visited Womai museum “in the dark” part. It was real eye-opener and exhibition is very much interactive and interesting. Our guide Kamil was really great! He opened a door for us for the blind-people life. If you think how to spend 1 hour in Kraków city center it is really worth it. Thanks a lot!

Apparent and simple everyday activities, which most of us perform without much thought, become an undeniable challenge. The Path of Darkness is an interesting experience that allows you to step out of your comfort zone in a controlled way and explore the world you know in a completely new dimension. I recommend to everyone this adventure full of perceptive sensations. Our guide was Pawel who answered all our questions and made the darkness stop being disturbing very quickly.

Wybrałem się w stronę światła z panią Agatą oraz w stronę ciemności z panem Szymonem. Oboje przedstawiali swoje ekspozycje z pasją. Atmosfera pół żartem pół serio bardzo mi się podobała. Osobiście polecam razówno dziecią jak i dorosłym.

I went towards the light with Ms Agata and towards the dark with Mr Szymon. They both presented their expositions with passion. I enjoyed the half-joking half-serious atmosphere very much. I personally recommend it to both children and adults.

Such an amazing place to visit. Both exhibits were great and really totally different from each other. The Into the Light experience was a great mix of activities and learning. Our 9 year old had so much fun trying everything out. He was able to relate to a lot of the activities there very easily. Stanislav did a great job explaining how everything works and the science behind it.
The Into the Darkness experience was nothing like we have ever experienced before. Definitely makes you think about what someone is going through that has vision problems. Such a realistic experience. Our son again did wonderful with this and Kataryzyna was so engaging with all of us including our son. Both guides spoke English very well. We also spent a lot of time talking with the other staff there, really great people.
