In 2022, the Donders Institute muZIEum jointly opened the Donders Citylab at muZIEum in Nijmegen. The Citylab aims to bring science effectively to the general public by combining research, entertainment and education. The Citylab offers the Donders Institute the opportunity to showcase its research, and to collect data from people from all walks of life. For muZIEum, the Citylab broadens the experience and education of its visitors. Visitors will become participants in ongoing scientific experiments, will collect data on their own brain and behaviour, and will learn how the brain and technology shape the world. They will become aware of all their senses and can explore their brains in action.

Research at the Donders Institute is focused around four themes: 1. Language and communication, 2. Perception, action and decision-making, 3. Development and lifelong plasticity, 4. Natural computing and neurotechnology. Excellent, state-of-the-art research facilities are available for the broad range of neuroscience research that is being conducted at the Donders Institute. The Donders Institute has been assessed by an international evaluation committee as 'excellent' and recognised as a 'very stimulating environment for top researchers, as well as for young talent'. The Donders Institute fosters a collaborative, multidisciplinary, supportive research environment with a diverse international staff. English is the lingua franca at the Institute.
muZIEum is an 'experience museum' focusing on visual impairment. muZIEum promotes awareness of those living with visual impairments and provides paid employment and participation in society for this group. Visitors experience the life of a blind person in the Dark Experience or through a tour in the city of Nijmegen with VR glasses that simulate low vision. Tours are given by guides who themselves have a visual impairment.
