Dialog In The Dark

If you lose one of your senses, all others are heightened. If you lie with your eyes closed on the couch, all of a sudden the clock is ticking much louder, you will notice the crackling in the fireplace, the noise from the road seems to be louder than usual, and you can hear the buzz of the floor lamp. When you open your eyes again, the same room seems to be back to a much quieter room.

How do you perceive your environment if your eyesight is completely lost? At the Dialog Museum in Frankfurt you have the opportunity to be part of such an experiment; experience how your senses change and how you can become a master of everyday life when you are in complete darkness for 60-90 minutes.

In small groups of 8 people you move timidly, almost fearfully at first with a cane through themed rooms exploring your surrounding with caution and great care. However, once your eyes have adjusted to the darkness, you will be surprised how you adapt to  your new environment!

A great experience for young and old, a day out with friends or a perfect team building activity for companies! Since the themes of the rooms of the museum change from time to time, it is an event that can be visited more than once! Booking is essential, reservations can be made on 069/90 43 21 44
