Visitors will be able to defy the laws of gravity, play with optical illusions, trick their senses and see their shadow dissolve. And there’s no shortage of places to take super “instagrammable” photos.
Opened in Rome on Museum of Illusionsthe reality that continues the success of “entertaining museums”, with a strong interactive and experimental template, as it has already happened with Balloon Museum and the Museum of Dreamers in Milan. Also for the new museum on Via Merulana 17, the visitor is invited to move, interact, experience and touch, but above all to access the itinerary equipped with a smartphone and not miss the opportunity to take perfect photos to post on social networks.
Museum of Illusions in Rome
Born in 2015 in Zagreb, the Museum of Illusions was originally conceived as a single project that was then decided to be exported internationally due to its great potential to engage a cross-sectional audience. Therefore, Rome represents the city’s 38th destination after Dubai, Chicago, Paris, New York, Toronto, Milan, and others. An experience that is both entertaining and educational, consisting of more than 70 attractions divided into rooms and environments related to science, especially physics and psychology. In the Museum of Illusions it is possible to play with his own image in the room of mirrors, to feel infinite in the room of infinity, to resist and defy the laws of gravity, to try to guess the dimensions of some objects and to take effective pictures. It is possible to view the collection of holograms, and only in the Rome office can you also enter the Symmetry Room and the RGB Room which play with lights, sounds, colors and shapes. “The Museum of Illusions wants to stimulate thinking: our eyes are as imperfect as our brain”, explain the organizers.This museum allows you to understand how much fun you can have when your eyes, and above all your mind, see something that is actually impossible. It is a one-of-a-kind attraction that aims to encourage young people to go beyond their beliefs by bringing this experience back into their daily lives“.
