  • Got chance to visit Museum of Illusions with my kids. Very cool place to visit, we had a lot of fun. One of the best museum in the city so far. Different sort of unusual rooms with unique and different abstract pictures around. Nice spot to get some cool pictures. Definitely recommend to visit.
  • This is a very engaging little museum with wonderful staff. The illusions are great for all ages. It's not a long stay, though, and you will want to purchase your tickets online to save. The staff were very engaged and helpful, giving tips and offering to take photos. Our group of two families, kids aged 8-20, loved it.
