About
The Invisible House is one out of 5 tourist attractions in the world (of which we know) that presents the world by switching off the sense of sight. And it is one of the 5 most important places to visit in Torun. The tour lasts about 60 minutes and takes place in total darkness. Considering the fact of strong emotions experienced during the tour, we kindly invite persons at age 9+. The Invisible House directs its emotions to each of us individually. The proposed tour is of very unique, individual and personal character. Therefore, we would like to ask our visitors not to talk to friends or families of what they have seen here, or in fact, of what they have not seen in the Invisible House. Such reports and suggestions may interfere with experiences and impressions of our future visitors.

This was a totally unexpected experience. This “invisible house” tour is an attempt to teach sighted people how it feels to be blind.

The tour lasts about an hour. Firs, you put away your phone and any light source and are led by a guide’s voice through a house, in total darkness. You are to identify with all of the objects in the house - in the kitchen, the bathroom, and living room. The guide tells you where to go by following his voice as you go “outside,”complete with sound, into a garden and then to the neighbors house.

This museum is really a great service to help people understand what it is like to be without sight. Recommended!

I believe everyone should visit this place as one hour of 'being blind' made me realize how much I value my sight. However not recommended in groups bigger than three people, as me and my four friends struggled to touch the objects and experience all of it at once. After the sightseeing we had a possibility to ask the guide questions about being blind and his honest answers had most certainly fed our curiousity. I still relive this event...

For the way that we felt when we were not seeing, this unique kind of museum is something that me or my boyfriend will never forget. It was an amazing and humble experience, with a very kind and english-speaking guide that transports you to another world.

It is a lesson that I would recommend to anyone. so if you are in Torun and you have around 40 minutes for you, this is a must for me, nevermind the age.

The biggest question I had after the experience was: how come this does’t exist in more cities?

Placed in the strict center of the old town, The Invisible House is a great, not-so-obvious choice for spending an interesting afternoon in this historic city. Refreshing alternative to long sightseeing walks along Wisła river, surrounding parks and, of course, the city square. Great service in English and an overall eye-opening experience. Greetings to our guide Artur, thank you for the awesome trip!
*Do not recommend for hyperactive children.

This place allows to perceive the world in a different way. You get to know how difficult it is to be blind in the modern world. All the ways to improve blind peoples lives are still so small. A long way ahead of us. To be honest I was scared to be there even though I knew this was temporary. I also recommend to experience the gallery. Picturing a picture in your mind based on a story is pretty fascinating and works on imagination. The only reason I did not give the highest grade is that I missed information on braille alphabet. I totally recommend becoming a blind person for an hour. It really makes you more sensitive and aware.

What a great idea! I will say no more. Shows a great sensitivity and respect to those sight challenges. I have never seen anything like that. Too bad COVID complicates smooth operations.

My 9 year old son and I very much enjoyed our experience in The Invisible House. Our guide was great, accommodating our small group in English, also offering Polish when necessary for my son’s friend. We got to explore some aspects of what it might be like to live without sight, and at the end the guide offered a chance to ask any questions at without feeling foolish or mean, just accepting our curiosity as a chance to learn more. He was also quite patient with two excited (at times loud) 9 year old boys!
