"THE OOGFONDS THINKS IT'S IMPORTANT THAT REAL AWARENESS WILL BE RISEN IN THE NETHERLANDS FOR THE TROUBLES THAT BLIND AND PARTIALLY SIGHTED PEOPLE HAVE TO DEAL WITH EVERY DAY. EXPEDITION TACTILE PAVING PROVIDES JUST THIS IN A UNIQUE WAY AND PROVIDES EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR THIS TARGET GROUP."
Edith Mulder, CEO Oogfonds
The participants are handed Virtual Reality glasses and a white cane to find their way through Nijmegen. The glasses are provided with an application that we developed specifically for MuZIEum. The App simulates alternatives of partially sightedness like tunnel vision where the participant can see the world, but only through a small opening.
The MuZIEum offers visitors a surprising and unique experience. They are being immersed in a world where they can see for themselves, what it's like to be blind or partially sighted. The various experiences aim to raise awareness for the barriers, but also the possibilities that come from a visual limitation. In the MuZIEum de roles are reversed; the blind lead the seeing. It offers a looking glass to see what it's like, and it brings you an unforgettable experience.
The MuZIEum has been proclaimed as being the most innovative excursion of the Netherlands in 2013, and the most fun excursion of Gelderland in 2015.
