Use your senses to navigate a pitch-black tunnel

Please note: This exhibition is temporarily closed.

The Touch Tunnel is an 80-foot, crawl-through, pitch-black tunnel. Exploring an unknown environment in the dark makes you realize how much we rely on sight to move through the world.

The Touch Tunnel experience is available first come, first served. Line up early! On busy days, the line may be closed to newcomers up to an hour before the building closes.
