We had a personal greeting at the till and staff were very friendly. The tour was lead in German, I don't know whether they do tours in English though. All tour guides are blind and you are lead through different scenes to experience life as a blind person. It was a very interesting experience which makes you think about what it would be like to live life without the ability to see.
What a fantastic experience! I visited the Dialog Museum as part of a group from Frankfurt's Bahnhofs Mission. I don't recall the minimum group size, but if you show up with just a few people you may have to wait until another smaller group arrives to go in. Tickets are €14 for adults and the Dialog in the Dark tour lasts around an hour. It's a bit steep for a typical hours worth of entertainment (a two hour film costs less) but it's an extremely enriching experience.
The Dialog in the Dark tour takes visitors through several locations to experience what it's like to be blind. Absolute darkness means it's impossible to see anything even with your eyes wide open. What I love about the tour is that all of the guides are either blind or visually impaired. Since the entire tour is completely black, I wouldn't recommend it for children unless they're prepared to spend at least an hour without sight.
Top Three Highlights:
1.) Easily accessible by public transit (Strassenbahn 11)
2.) Benefits blind and visually impaired
3.) Helps to understand people with disabilities' points of view
