Fun and educational
Feb 2020 • Solo
Lots of fun and makes you really appreciate your sight and blind people. It’s educational and teaches you how to engage with blind people you meet. Well organised and supervised and even if you are solo you quickly make connections with people in your group in the dark. English speaking people need to email and make arrangements to join a English group.

Such a sensorial experience.
Try to close your eyes and do the most simple daily things. It won't be so easy.
All my respect for our English speaking guide.

Thought provoking and really interesting

We had an English Speaking guide Tomasz who talked us through our visit. It was a superb experience and made each of us realise just how much we take for granted ...never more so than at the end when we could restore our senses back to our normal. Not everyone is so lucky. Excellent visit and highly recommend this.

Honestly one of the best things I've ever done
Aug 2019
The title of this review is not hyperbole - I would genuinely recommend this to absolutely everyone. It is not often that we get to truly put ourselves in other people's shoes - particularly people with disabilities/inpairments - and gain an understanding of what life is like for them.
This incredible exhibition does just that - you step into the darkness with a guide and attempt to navigate through life (a home, a shop, a street, a museum) using all senses apart from your eyes. I don't want to go into detail because I don't want to spoil it so JUST DO IT.
We went on the English speaking tour and our guide was wonderful. She expertly navigated our group through each section, made us feel at ease and made us laugh. She was informative, friendly and always happy to help. Her English was also good and she put up with all of my questions (I recommend having a think about what you want to ask beforehand as I seemed to be the only one in a group of 8 who wanted to know things!)
Before or after the tour there is a waiting area in which you can attempt to play games and do puzzles blindfolded - if you have time definitely give it a go. It is SO much harder than you think!
One thing I will say - as soon as we stepped into the darkness at the start, one member of our group decided she did not want to do it. I wouldn't recommend this tour (obviously) for people who are afraid of darkness or are severely claustrophobic.
I have been talking non stop about this place since we came and I'm so excited to see that the exhibition is also coming to London. But do not wait - if you are in Warsaw please, please visit this one!

Absolutely horrible experience
Aug 2019 • Family
I got informed just outside the entrance, after I've paid for the tickets that my 9 year old daughter is not allowed in as she can't speak Polish. What's even worse is that they refused to give me money back and the lady at the reception was rude and very unprofessional. Beware. Absolutely horrid.

Madam. I am going to write the same as on fb. The situation is well known to me, because immediately after yesterday's unpleasant (only for us and possibly for a young man, whose babysitters did not fully understand the message of the exhibition and did not read the regulations), the incident came to me. https://niewidzialna.pl/en/what-is-it/rules-for-visitors - here you can find the basic (!!) rules for everyone, who wants to join exhibition. I will even remind the point: "All persons in the group must speak in one, common language (English tours are available after sending request on email adress: info@niewidzialna.pl) consistent to Guide’s language skills." Just read. And additionally, read with understanding. Our specificity enforces the use of such rules only for the comfort and safety of both visitors and our employees. Children, especially younger ones, are a separate matter at all, although here the young man is in the compartment. If you and the other guardian reported before buying that your child does not speak Polish, we would simply refuse to sell tickets and together we could think - at our discretion - can you join the English-speaking group if all three of them used the language. Every day one, two or three groups are conducted in English, on the main page www.niewidzialna.pl we have marked in red the principle we use when there is a demand from the guest for sightseeing in this language. Easier, believe me, it can't be done. And if you wanted to risk "smuggling" your child into the dark, think about what would happen if the guide, a blind person, did not speak English? Not everyone knows. And for sightseeing we have a specific time and we do not provide translations in the so-called "in the meantime". All guests are to be given attention, and energy cannot be focused on the person who needs translation. You can try to write to anyone - as you like. We know our value, we are assertive, not rude. And for almost 8 years we have a lot of warmth from guests. Cases of negative feedback - extremely rare - come from people like you. Which did not read or read the regulations, which - perversely - come to us in the dark. As long as it comes to adults who speak Polish, it works. As for children and foreigners - we are restrictive. As for the refund - I repeat - if you said that a child does not speak Polish, there would be no sale. And an attempt to outsmart us, as well as not reading the rules, shows that the good of the child is not the highest priority for you and your friend (?). We will not bear any financial consequences for your lack of responsibility. We wish you all the best.

Dear sir, The rules are aleays the rules. Why? In our case - safety and comfort. Both sides - our guests and our guides. I will try to explain how does it work: - on the webside we gave red remark: englishspeakers should book only by email info@niewidzialna.pl - there we can suggest the date, because we don’t mix languages at the groups. It would take much more time and is uncomfortable for guests. We have special groups only in english - usually 2, 3 per day. - we have oy polishspeaking and englishspeaking guide. So if your girlfriend doesn’t speak any of those - how can we deliver the service? BTW we inform about the fact on our webpage of course, so nobody should be surprise. - we don’t give the money back, regulate by the law, if you buy by the web plus don’t give back the money if somebody doesn’t accept our regulations. Here we have 2 in 1. From our side we do everything as we can. Next time sir, before you want to push your frustrations on review please think over if everything you did was ok. Here - for sure it wasn’t. We are not typical exhibition. It is completly darkness where everybody should communicate 100%. Our guides are blind, but do the best service if you keep the rules. Our reception are guardians of order.

Something, which everyone should experience
Oct 2018 • Friends
I visited a similar exhibition in Hamburg few years ago. Although I knew what to expect, it still impacted me a lot. Being in a dark room and trying to find your way without seeing anything helps you to understand what blind people have to go through. Gives you bigger perspective. Our guide, was Rock. He was really professional and nice. He made sure that we were safe and that constantly we were occupied. I highly recommend it to everyone. An advice from my side would be to wear comfortable shoes and to book the visit in advance as many people are interested in it.

Something totally different. You do have to throw yourself into it and get involved, don't just leave it to others, you will get much more out of the experience.

BEST EXHIBITION IVE EVER BEEN TOO!
Jul 2018 • Solo
I’m pretty passionate about those with sight impairments being in the nursing profession so to come here this evening was amazing!
Our guide was lovely she was very understanding and her kind words got us through.
Excuse the pun but it really does open your eyes into how people overcome their disabilities.
Would definitely recommend and if I go to any others in the other cities offering this experience I’ll definitely go.
