HUMAN SENSES

An oversized cube is the dominant feature of the largest and at the same time the last room of the permanent exhibition. The circumference of the oversized cube is focused on four human senses (touch, sight, hearing, and smell, only the sense of taste is not included). The visitor verifies his or her senses through simple quiz questions and tasks.

A simulated dark space is inside the cube – a household for people who are blind, which the visitor recognizes using only 2 human senses- touch and hearing. There is a model of a part of the kitchen unit and objects of common daily use.

The room is divided into two parts. The right side of the room offers visitors get to know various historical compensatory teaching aids, games, and relief maps for people who are blind. There are compensatory teaching aids for people who are deaf on the left side of the room.

This part of the exhibition offers the visitor the opportunity to write a text in Braille on the Prague slate using a stylus. They get to understand the functioning of a cochlear implant through an enlarged functional model, and much more.
