I have always been someone who has enjoyed going to the museum. Be it the National History Museum or the Wax museum, Delhi has so much to offer. And to add to this collection comes the distinctive and one of a kind “Museum of Illusions“.
The Museum of Illusion is a unique and interactive concept, which is both entertaining as well as educational.
The optical installations attract not only youngsters but people from all age groups.
The original Museum of Illusions concept was launched in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015. The museum has been expanding ever since with branches in Athens, Hamburg, Milan etc. India got its first franchise in Connaught Place, New Delhi.
As you enter the Museum you are greeted by some interesting mind boggling puzzles and the Kaleidoscope. As you venture further, the next installation would be the ‘Following eyes’ which I have to tell you is captivating and absolutely astounding.
Some of my favorite illusions are –
- Color Room
- Clone Table
- Head on the platter
- Infinity room
- The Vortex Tunnel
With over 50+ Illusions, this place is based on the principles of Math’s, Science and Psychology.
