The extraordinary Dialogue in the Dark is a specially constructed exhibition in total darkness, where sounds, wind, temperatures and textures convey the characteristics of daily environments. In a complete role reversal, visitors are provided a sense of security and orientation by their blind or partially sighted guides.

Dialogue in the Dark was started by social entrepreneur Andreas Heinecke in 1988 and has been experienced by 6.5-million visitors in more than 30 countries, providing employment and empowerment for 6000 blind people.

Sci-Bono is the largest science centre in southern Africa. The name Sci-Bono comes from an abbreviation of "Science” and "Bono", the TshiVenda word for "vision", a reflection of the centre’s mission to inspire insight into all aspects of modern science and technology.
