DIALOG MUSEUM

”Dialogue in the Dark” is expected to reopen at its new downtown location in early Summer 2020. There’ll be nothing to see in this unique museum, but plenty to feel. Four adventure areas await visitors, who are led through the museum by blind or vision-impaired tour guides. The tour promises to sharpen the senses and to make it possible for participants to experience and understand the sensation of blindness. The new “sound room”, which may be visited independently of the main tour, will help visitors to gain new sensorial impressions.

The renovated and expanded museum promises to offer many interesting perspectives. The original building and the new annexe will be spatially juxtaposed and connected by a corridor replete with a terrace café. With all of these new features in place, a visit of this historically and architecturally interesting museum will be an absolute must.
