What is VI SES?

A sensory interactive exhibition with the mission to show the everyday life of blind people to the sighted through real life experiences.
You find us at Österlånggatan 41, 111 31 Stockholm. located in the heart of Stockholms’ Old town, in the neigborhood of Nobel Museet and Kungliga Slosset. We advise you to arrive by public transport (T-bana: Slussen or Gamla Stan).
The exhibition consists of two parts. Visitors usually spend 15 to 30 minutes in the visible part, where they can familiarize themselves with aids and blind games, and 45 to 50 minutes in the dark part.
VI SES can be visited from the age of 10. At least one companion over the age of 18 is always required in the group.
Although there are no scary sounds or other effects on the show, we would like to highlight to the fact that for a small child, due to their age, total darkness can cause fear in some cases. Keep this in mind when planning your program! Access to the exhibition is not possible under the age of 10.
Due to the nature of VI SES, the dark part of the exhibition is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.
We recommend to come in comfortable clothes and shoes. No other equipment is required to enter.
Due to the personal nature of the exhibition and to avoid unpleasant expectations, reservations are strongly recommended. We depart groups with a maximum of 8 people in the dark area every 30/60 minutes. When these places are full, drop-in guests can only be accepted and grouped only by cancellation.
Please use the Booking link. We provide 8 free places for one timeslot, in the event of a larger number of people, the next 8 free places/places can be used. Our email address is booking@vi-ses.se where you can also write about your booking.

Experience the world through the eyes of the visually impaired at VI SES

• 45 min i interaktiv utställningen
• 45 min guidad tur
(max 10 elever samtidigt per guidad tur)

Goda råd!
Det är lämpligt att hela klassen anländer samtidigt till våra lokaler i Gamla Stan.
Sätt gärna ihop grupperna i förväg, 8-10 personer per grupp.
Det kan vara bra att förbereda eleverna redan i klassrummet, t ex samla frågor:
– Drömmer de blinda?
– Vad betyder färger för dem?
– När är tekoppen fylld med varmt vatten?
Skriv ner frågorna och ta med er!

Avbokning måste göras via e-post eller telefon senast 48 timmar före bokad tid.
Kontakta oss på mail eller telefon så kan vi berätta mer i detalj vad som är möjligt.
