|About the museum:
Since its foundation in 1953, through its programmes, the museum has helped persons with disabilities to take a full part in all forms of life of the social community and accordingly in enjoying the experience of visiting a museum. Other interested visitors can find out how disabled persons perceive the environment surrounding them and how they can overcome the everyday difficulties confronting them. In 2008 the permanent display of the museum was opened. It consists of the following units: Dark Room; the beginnings of institutional care for the blind; everyday life in the national institute; the development of script for the blind; keeping in step with the time; artworks of blind artists. In the Dark Room, via a simulation, for a moment you can learn what it means not to be able to see. Without the help of another person, and without additional instructions (or if you want with a guide and instructions) you can move around in total darkness, doing your best to perform simple tasks.
