Into the darkness

EXPERENCE BEING BLIND

During the tour “Into the darkness” all the light will go out and you will be taken to the kingdom of senses. On the path of absolute darkness, you will try to recognize the world from the perspective of a blind person and imagine things that are invisible for us but which we can hear, touch, or even feel.

WHAT:

The tour takes about 60 minutes and takes place in complete darkness, in the presence of our guide, who is blind or partially sighted. During this experience, you will face everyday situations without the use of your eyesight, using only your other senses.

See if you can safely cross the busy street, shop at the market, or do simple home activities.

WHEN:

We are open from Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., and on weekends from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.

PRICE OF TICKET:

Adults - PLN 45, school children and students (upon presentation of the ID card) - PLN 40.

We leave all personal items, such as your mobile in the lockers provided.

You can take advantage of our combined ticket offer and visit both exhibitions: "Towards the Light" and "Towards the Darkness" at a special price.

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE EXHIBITION?

This exhibition aims to educate people about the social value of people with visual disabilities. Our achievement is to provide visitors with a personal, emotional experience and enable them to realistically meet people who are experts in their field.

We create emotions through "immersion", which in this case means completely entering the darkness, facing all sorts of challenges without one of the most important senses. Sighted people here become "blind", dependent on guides, for whom the darkness, in turn, is their natural environment.

This reversal of roles leads to a change of perspective and the way of interaction between non-disabled people and those with various dysfunctions. The blind would like to share their stories with us, which is why they are so eager to share their experiences with us.

They believe that the story of what happens to them, and what, in a sense, our guests also experience, will lead to the breaking of thought patterns and stereotypes. We guarantee that this experience will remain in your memory long after the visit.
