Overview
More
The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple, visitors are lead by blind guides in groups through specially constructed dark rooms in which scent, sound, wind, temperature and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments - for example a park, a city, a boat cruise or a bar. The daily routines become a new experience. A reversal of roles is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environment. Blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation by transmitting to them a world without pictures. The tour itself lasts 45 minutes but the effects can last a lifetime. The concept has been proved quite effective. Over the last 25 years Dialogue in the Dark has been presented in more than 36 countries and 170 cities throughout the world since its opening in 1988. More than seven million visitors worldwide have experienced Dialogue in the Dark and thousands of blind guides and trainers have found employment through Dialogue in the Dark. We are guide-dog friendly.

I had two overseas visitors and a hot, humid and rainy day so we came here. We all had a fun and enlightening time. An hour passed by but we thought it was only 10 mins.
