Designed to amuse, amaze, and stimulate the senses, the Museum of Illusions features more than 80 unique visual and educational installations appealing to locals and tourists of all ages.

The concept of the Museum offers an original and unique experience to visitors, locals, and tourists that will create lasting memories.
Within the Museum, there is also a "Dilemma" indoor playroom and "Dilemma" shop where visitors of all ages can play, compete, learn, and buy mind challenging games that encourage creative thinking.
