Museum of Illusions Maastricht

 In this brand new museum, visitors of all ages are introduced to the world of optical illusions. Although fun and challenging, entertainment is not the end goal. Learning about science and from each other comes before anything. In the museum, you can explore all aspects of optical illusions. Imagine yourself in a world where nothing is as it seems. In the museum you can spend hours crunching your brain about how we interpret and process things. The ideal outing for your children, but also couples and young people will be able to wander around for hours.

What's special about the museum is that you yourself are an important part of the illusions, not only as a visitor, but also as a test subject! So if you've always wanted to see your kids as giants, or you literally want to turn your partner’s world upside down? Then come along quickly!
