This certainly is a special place to make one understand the handicapped. We came and enjoyed a music concert in the dark- it certainly makes you more aware of the sounds, as you do not see (much).

We came to watch the Play: Not by Bread Alone. A very emotive and inspirational play, we loved it! After the play we had the chance to interact with the characters whose are blind, deaf or mute. Loved it!
