Their branch on Geula has exactly the same stuff, so no need to schlep all the way down there (depends on your location).
I was there a while ago, and they had all the Shabbos stuff.
The one is Geula is NOT fleishigs.

That's a bummer. Why are they closed? (Not that an Israeli institution needs an excuse to close)

I didn't enjoy it as much, but you can go to the deaf museum right next door to it. Other people have told me they enjoyed the deaf museum even more than the blind museum

The deaf museum is amazing!! The tour is given by an actual deaf person. It made the tour so much more real!!

It is really good. I happened to enjoy the blind museum more (which btw is also given by an actual blind person). The last time I was there they were working on a new museum. Museum of time or something like that. Supposed to be able to make you understand life from an elderly persons perspective or something like that. Seemes interesting but not sure if they are up and running
