What's included

Entrance to muZIEum
Dutch-speaking live guide
Small lockers for valuables
  • Access muZIEum (muSEEum) for an insightful, multi-sensory experience led by the blind and visually impaired
  • Choose the interactive Tour in Darkness to sample everyday tasks without the benefit of your handy peepers
  • Opt to take on the outside world with the Ribbelroute ticket, and explore Nijmegen on a virtual reality-assisted tour which replicates visual impairment

If you're lucky enough to have been born with perfect or near-perfect vision, the idea of living life in perpetual blur or darkness is impossible to grasp. Could an hour of blindness open your eyes?

Nijmegen's muZIEum is unlike usual guided museum tours. You're led by blind and partially sighted staff. The learning at this unique sensory museum is achieved only through touching, hearing, and smelling via the Tour in Darkness ticket.

Armed with a white cane, you'll experience some of the daily norms and struggles of people who don't have the benefit of fully functioning sight. Get a small taste of what it's like to potter around the kitchen, browse in a supermarket, and cross the street. Your guide will lead you through the darkness – they're pretty adept, as you can imagine.

The exhibitions are true to real life, but you can also opt to take the experience out into the real world. Choose the Ribbelroute and you'll explore the streets of Nijmegen with a pair of virtual reality glasses that replicate visual impairments. You operate the app's menu with only your eyes!

Your guide(s) will help you along the way while explaining the issues they face out in the world on a daily basis. Experience the world from a different perspective!
