A sensory exhibition set in total darkness, designed to enlighten you and push you out of the comfort zone orienting you to a world without pictures.

The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple: visitors are led by blind guides through dark rooms in which scent, sound, wind, temperature, and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments – for example a park, a bus stop, an open market, or a cafe. These daily routines become new experiences. A role reversal is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environment, and guides provide security and a sense of orientation. The tour itself lasts for about one hour but the effects can last a lifetime. This exhibition was inspired by Martín Buber’s philosophy, “the only way to learn is through encounter”.

The concept has proven quite effective. Over the last 30 years, the exhibition has been presented in more than 45 countries throughout the world with more than 10 million visitors worldwide. Dialogue in the Dark brings together people of all visual abilities at every level of our operation. Together, we are committed to creating a more inclusive world for all.

*Is the tour in the dark?
