Dialogue in the dark is an exhibition that the visitors are lead by blind guides through the darkened room. The exhibition was originally created by a German Entrepreneur and has been presented in 39 countries throughout the world.
I have heard about this exhibition for a while and last month I had a chance to visit this exhibition.
For Bangkok-Thailand, the exhibition is located in NSM Science Square. Just walk into the square, then you will see the ticket counter.
I bought a ticket, and then walked up the stairs. The exhibition was located on the second floor.
In front of the exhibition, there were the backdrops telling the visitors a little bit about the history of the exhibition.
The lockers were available in front of the exhibition and I was asked to keep my personal stuffs there. The visitors were not allowed to bring camera or phone into the exhibition. I only took some cash out with me.
Before walking into the darkened room, the officer handed me a walking stick and taught me how to use it. Then, she walked me to the room and recommended me the guide, who took care me throughout the trip.
All in all, it was an amazing and unique experience and you should not miss! Usually a guide would take care visitors in group and the maximum of the group was 8 people. Well, since I was there alone, the guide took care me alone. It was around one hour that I could not see anything through my eyes, but I used other human senses to survive. The price was very cheap comparing to what I experienced. No worry about the language; it was available in both Thai and English version. Highly recommended!
