Typhlology is the scientific study of blindness, its causes, effects, and control and this museum is one of just a few in the world dedicated to the subject. It was built on a small number of objects collected by Vinko Bek, pedagogue and advocate for blind rights, during the late 19th century. The permanent collection now holds teaching and writing aids, medical equipment, art created by blind artists, and photographs. The permanent exhibition also includes a “Dark Room,” a pitch-black maze, where you temporarily need to abandon sight and let your other senses guide you through. It is an absolutely unique museum worth visiting.
