Museum of Illusions
At the Dubai Museum of Illusions, you can admire a world of optical illusions and incredible 3D installations. You can trick your brain in this museum. Covering an area of 450 square meters, the museum’s collection has 80 different optical illusions, including a Vortrex tunnel that will give visitors the impression that the ground is moving. There is also a special room in the museum that makes you feel like you are shrinking as you walk through the room depending on where you are.
All exhibits are categorized as “master illusions”, “grand illusions” or “optical illusions”.
Unlike many other museums, the Museum of Illusions encourages you to sit through the artwork and exhibits. You can spend hours racking your brain. Play games with your friends and see who solves the puzzle first. And don’t forget that these games also make you smarter. You can buy souvenirs to bring puzzles to your family members or friends.
