The Typhlological Museum in Zagreb is one of the rare special museums in Europe dealing with the problems of disabled persons, especially of the visually impaired. It got its name by merging the Greek words “typhlos” (blind) and “logos” (saying). The museum highlights the needs of the blind and the visually impaired, and the items they need in everyday life. A fully darkened room, which allows you to experience a moment in life of these people, is on permanent display at the museum. Here you can also see a computer made for the blind and visually impaired with Braille keyboard stickers, as well as see how the alphabet for the blind was made and find out which institutions took care of the blind.
