Museum of Illusions’ collection of interactive, immersive and distinctly incomprehensible exhibits are based on math, science, and psychology. Visitors are prompted to learn about the tricks of perception and how the human brain works as they move through each exhibit. Imaginations can run free in the vast expanse of the Infinity Room, defy the laws of gravity in the Reverse Room, and shrink to miniature size in the Ames Room — all while capturing a coveted, baffling photo.
In addition to its core collection, the museum boasts of climate-controlled building, 1-2-hour experience, free parking at ICON Park, and adjacency to food and beverage outlets. Guests can purchase puzzles, mind-tricking games and other souvenirs in the museum’s Smart (Gift) Shop and holiday merchandise, including custom ornaments and shirts, ugly Christmas sweaters and more are also available online.
The museum has a variety of COVID-19 safety measures in place, including face masks while inside the museum, limited capacity, designated time slots, one-way paths through exhibits, ongoing cleaning by staff, and hand sanitizers and wipes for guests.
