    What to Expect
    Visit: Museum of Illusions, Wallnerstrasse 4, Vienna 1010 Austria

    If you’re in the mood for something different, bring your camera and visit us in Museum of Illusions.

    HOLOGRAMS: Start the visit with holograms, a photographic recording of a light field, which is used to display a fully three-dimensional image of the holographed subject and making them look so realistic.

    EINSTEIN HOLLOW FACES: Dance and move in front of them! Find out why Einsteins are following you while you are doing it. They are all the same static concave faces and yet you seem to perceive them differently.

    INTERACTIVE OPTICAL ILLUSIONS: Which line is longer, which angle is bigger? Museum of Illusions encourages visitors to be interactive with the exhibits, try them out, measure and play with them, solve them. The visitor can become part of the illusion.

    VORTEX TUNNEL: Step inside and demonstrate your courage in this rotating cylinder. You’ll have difficulty moving and will think you are losing ground under your feet even though you’re actually standing on a stable, flat surface.

    AMES ROOM: Watch your parents shrink and grow in front of you, or picture yourself as a giant. Now you will know why Hobbit looked much smaller then Gandalf in The Lord of The Rings film trilogy. Camera cannot perceive what human eyes can can so you will surely have many funny unbelievable pictures from this room.

    HEAD ON A PLATE: If you are in the mood you can serve your friend´s Head on a Plate or have a combination of head and legs without the torso. Try it out, Imagination is the only limit.

    IMPOSSIBLE CHAIR: You want to see your dad or a friend three times smaller then you? Forced perspective is a technique which manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects.

    UP-SIDE-DOWN ROOM: Levitate above the floor, stand on one finger or walk on the wall, everything is possible in Up-Side-Down room! Use your imagination to the maximum because we like to reward the most creative and original pictures.

    INFINTY ROOM and KALEIDOSCOPE: Peek inside of Kaleidoscope or Infinity room to take the best Selfie with 100 of your Reflections.

    SWAP FACES: Combine yours and your friend´s face.

    MIND GAMES and 3D PUZZLES: If you still didn´t get enough of mind challenging and fun illusions, we have more than 50 different wooden Mind‐Games and 3D Puzzles for you to solve, all you need is time and patience. Our friendly staff is always there to help you with anything you need!

    Amusing and awesome facts will teach you about vision, perception, human brain and science behind it, so it will be easier to perceive why your eyes see things which your brain cannot understand.

    Located near the Hofburg Palace in the centre of Vienna, Museum of Illusions is the perfect experience for Friends, Families, Kids, Couples, Grandfathers and Grandmothers, all ages!

    Don't forget to bring your camera or smartphone to take the most unusual pictures home with you!

    It was very nice, I liked everything. The best was the rotating tube, my mind was very confused. I enjoyed the museum.

    1 floor of illusions you’ve either seen pictures of or heard about. If you’ve seen the fad through social media, don’t fall into the trap. 20 mins of mild entertainment is NOT worth the price. Letdown.

    We know yet, that it's not the eyes that see - it is the brain. :-) Perfect collection of illusions, vertigo at its best.

    The illusions are really confusing, but lots of fun. The children really enjoyed trying out all of the interactive displays. For the adults, it’s a little bit harder not to feel sick from the confusion to the brain. The puzzles everywhere were a lot of...More
