The blind was definitely cooler, but the deaf was an amazing experience too in its own way. I would say they were 2 very different kinds of experiences and time permitting you should try both.

+1 Did both. Actually enjoyed the deaf better. maybe because the guide was hilarious.

So was ours, I wonder if we had the same one or do most of them have a good sense of humor.

Not for kids IMHO, at least the blind one, they will be very scared. (I wasn't by the deaf one)

I don't see why the blind museum would be on anyone's "top 10" for Israel.  It is something that is found all over the globe (and in South Africa its actually much cheaper than IL), all run by the same company IIRC.  If someone is going to Israel to see sights that are only in Israel, Blind museum ain't one of them.

Eilat is IMHO debatable... Definitely not on top 5, maybe maybe on top 10!

Put it how you want it, But I don't think anyone here has gone to the blind museum other than in IL.

Fact is there's one right here in South Street Seaport (temporarily closed due to Sandy damage), and "Since its first opening in 1988 over six million visitors from more than 25 countries have experienced Dialogue in the Dark."

They're all over the place http://www.dialogue-in-the-dark.com/.

Do they have the deaf one here too? I thought only the blind. By the way that Palmach museum is fantastic!
