Trick Your Mind to What is Real or Not at the Museum of Illusions Dubai

There are quite a number of museums in the UAE, including the Dubai Museum, Etihad Museum, and more recently, Louvre Abu Dhabi. All of these places showcase colourful history, culture, and impressive art. However, the Museum of Illusions is totally interactive and will let trick your mind into believing what is reality.

The Museum of Illusions at Al Seef in Dubai is the biggest branch yet, with 80 exhibits that will boggle your mind and challenge your senses!

“When engaging with our illusions,” explains museum manager Varvara Svischeva, “your mind will combine some details and exclude others to create a sensory experience that defies logic.”

The museum has kept mum about the exact details of its exhibits, although we do know that it will feature a Vortex Tunnel, which will make the ground appear to move (hello, vertigo)! There will also be an upside down room, which is pretty much self-explanatory.

As if defying gravity and rushing through a spinning tunnel weren’t enough, there will also be plenty of Instagram-worthy exhibits. Fancy a serving of head, anyone?
