It surely will be an very interesting experience, pretending you are blind or sight-disabled, but the museum is not accessible for physically disabled persons (wheelchairs of walkers/rollators); there is a lift to the reception on the 1st floor, but to enter the museum you need...More

We would really recommend this museum. Really fantastic experience. Experience little sight in a safe/enjoyable way. Kids (13,11,8) were apprehensive but really enjoyed it.

The muZIEum isn't a museum in the traditional sense of the word. You don't turn up and browse items of interest (except some of the items in the waiting room). Instead, you have to book a 'tour' ahead of time. If you're not a native...More
