When you put your foot in the Museum of Illusions in Belgrade, you will see that the optical illusions are awaiting at every possible spot. Maybe your eyes will already be ready for it, but in any case, free your imagination. When in front of the bottomless pit, you can see thousand copies of yourself from virtually all angles or recognize another person’s head “served” on a plate. A mirror room, a kaleidoscope, a room that changes the person's perception of size, didactic-logic toys and riddles are just a few of the exhibits offered in the Museum of Illusions. You will learn that even the simplest thing, just as a black wheel, may look completely different from several perspectives. Maybe you will be spooked, or maybe you will start thinking how we all perceive things in a different way. Round may seem rectangular, short tall and curvy straight. By the end of the visit, you might even start questioning your own reflections.

Museum of Illusions spreads over 400 square meters and offers an intriguing visual, sensory and educational experience – a true adventure for all generations. Through attractive and entertaining tricks, visitors learn a lot about sight , perception, human brain and science, and can understand why our eyes see things that the brain does not understand. Daniela Tomasevic, director of the Museum of Illusions

This fascinating world of illusions is designed to allure all your senses. It is an ideal place for all generations, from 7 to 107 years old. One of the best parts is that the ticket fee is only 6 euros for adults and 4 euros for children, which you can easily get at the door of the museum. However, do bring some extra money for the coolest souvenir store that offers precious toys for all ages. What makes this place so unique and attractive is that with its true richness of the exhibits, you will have memorable fun time but also learn more about vision, perception, human brain and scientific explanations behind illusions. In the end, you will just wonder whether all of this was an illusion after all.
