My student told me about an exhibition happening in Prague this month where blind people take blind-folded visitors on a sense-stimulating tour through the darkness. This, the Invisible Exhibition, must be it.

Quote from site:

"At The Invisible Exhibition in Prague, the participants obtain information exclusively through touch, hearing, scent and their sense of balance. This way, in the new situation caused by the loss of sight and despite the difficulties, they can experience that the world can be still beautiful without this key sense."

Tours are 1.5 hours, one hour of which is experienced blindfolded. I might check this out, although I am not sure if the guides speak English. It would be good to check this when you make your reservation. Note that a reservation must be done in advance in order to book a blind (or partially-blind) guide. I think seeing-eye dogs are involved too. The price is 180kc for an adult.

More information can be found here on the city of Prague's website:
