The Museum consists of illusionistic rooms, optical illusions and a playroom with didactic games and puzzles. You can laugh, scream, run, take photos and are allowed to play and get creative!

It is made of more than 70 exhibits which are all based on science, mathematics, biology and psychology. Visitors can learn a lot about vision, perception, the human brain and science through attractive and fun exhibits. In that way, they also learn why our eyes see things that our brain does not understand.


The Museum of Illusions is a 21st century museum that aims at entertaining visitors, but also wants to make you question all your senses. Our eye is imperfect, and so is our brain. This museum shows you how you can have a lot of fun when your eyes see something that your brain does not understand.
