About
What is it like to be blind or partially sighted? You can read about it or someone can tell you about it from their own experience, but during a visit to muZIEum (muSEEum) you will experience it yourself. Enter a world in which your other senses - hearing, smell, touch and taste - suddenly play a far more important role than you are used to.

Really enjoyed this museum. It was very interesting. We had a tour through English which was great. Our guide Freddie was very friendly and engaging. 2x teens also enjoyed it. Highly recommended and a unique experience.

What a great experience this was! Our guide was the best part of it, I have to say. Bart is an excellent storyteller and a really funny guy. Considering going back with a larger group of friends.

Good experience
Oct 2020 • Friends
Me and my sister grew up in Nijmegen, but had nog done the outside experience from the Muzieum yet. We do recommend it. They have very nice guides who have really bad sight who come with you and they tell you their story. You can ask all your questions. Also their is a seeing guide who comes as well. They show you around and with the VR glasses on you can experience different eye illnesses and how it is to live and walk with such an illness. You have your stick to feel the ground. An interesting experience everyone should do. It is a real eye opener because you get to know things you otherwise would never think about. Why certain decisions are made etc.

Well worth the money and very interesting
Aug 2020 • Family
I was in Nijmegen visiting family with my 2 boys and we were looking to do something different. I can't recommend this highly enough. It's around an hour and half of your time and we all found it really enlightening. Don't worry if you can't speak Dutch as they have excellent English speaking guides ours was Jasper. There are several puzzles and interesting things to do beforehand and then you send around an hour in the pitch black with a guide stick and navigate around a pre set scenario to experience what it is like for the blind all the time. Our scenario was a holiday so we went to the airport, checked into the hotel, went to a restaurant etc. There are sounds and props and as I said it was interesting, entertaining and eye opening (no pun intended). Go along and keep the muZIEum open

Best experience of Nijmegen so far! “Seeing” my surrounding in a different way & gaining more appreciation of what it means to be blind. Everyone was welcoming & helpful.

AMAZING experience!

I went there with my boyfriend, and to be honest, i got really scared when we started the tour but the guide was extremely friendly and kind, making all my fears disappeared in a second. The tour is designated to help you get over any fears or things which make you uncomfortable, because it gets you on a journey of exploring the world with all your other senses besides your sight! AMAZING!

Not for wheelchair users
Oct 2019
We were looking forward to our visit. Having gone up in the lift, we went to buy tickets only to be told that the experience was not possible for someone using a wheelchair. It’s disappointing that something aimed at helping people understand about what it might be like to have a sensory impairment has not been designed to accommodate those with physical disabilities. We were offered a short free experience, but decided that this was not what we’d come for.

Really eye-opening experience
Mar 2019 • Friends
This was fantastic, a really enlightening experience. We went into a space that was completely dark for a one hour tour led by a blind man. We went through multiple rooms that were constructed to be like typical places anyone would encounter in the world, like a kitchen, a supermarket and a street crossing. It was, obviously, very hard to get through these rooms, but easier once we learned how. Our guide was great, although his English was a little slow. He was very helpful in explaining how he has to manage all the situations we encountered. Overall this was an excellent experience that everyone should have.
