Museum of Illusions – Milan
A fun science experience that tricks our confidence in senses. Open all year long
The Museum of Illusions in Milan is located in the Central Station area and includes more than 70 attractions that tricks our confidence in senses.
Designed first for children and teenagers it is also interesting for adults who want to have fun with science.
The Museum of Illusions is halfway between an interactive museum and a playground.
The exhibition features a series of holograms, optical illusions and installations that continually remind us that our beliefs about the perceived world are often nothing more than a spectrum of illusions.
Among the installations of the museum:
– the Vortex Tunnel makes visitors believe they are struggling to take a step forward through a rotating cylinder,
– the Upside Down Room and the Infinity Room, where visitors have to ‘resist’ the laws of gravity and the size ratio,
– the room in which it seems to rotate on itself,
– the giant and the dwarf one that gives the illusion of growing or shrinking at will.
And many optical illusions that conceive the eyes and the brain …
There is also a Playroom that offers intriguing and instructive games and puzzles.
The double purpose of the museum is to give fun, but also to make people aware of new things about perspective, science, math, biology, psychology and much more.
The museum is open 7 days a week, from 10am to 8pm.
