I keep telling my kids that museums are fun, but truth be told, some of them aren’t. Yes, they can be educational and interesting, but fun? That might be me overexaggerating.
I was very happy that the Museum of Illusions proved me right for once. It has everything I promised my kids museums have: around 40 interesting exhibits, that teach you something new, make you think about things we take for granted. Photo illusions, optical illusions, holograms engage you, so you don’t just wander the halls moving from one item to the next, knowing full well you have no idea what you just saw five minutes ago.
It might be small in size and true, if you didn’t pay attention you could be done with the two floors it covers in 10 minutes. But I dare you to try. Once you enter, even if you weren’t convinced it sucks you in and you can’t help yourself but take your time and be intrigued. So, do plan to spend well over an hour exploring the museum.
