The Museum of Illusions in the center of Vienna is a very special exhibition. It is about the deception of the senses, mostly the eyes. Many dozens of illusions can be seen in the small museum. One can participate. It is an attraction for children and adults.
One of the highlights is the gag through a tunnel (see picture). Through spinning lights the visitor is made to believe that the room is spinning. In reality, however, they are only moving lights. One has difficulties among other things with walking straight ahead.
Other illusions hang on the wall or are toys made of wood and the like. The small museum is great fun, everything is well done. We really enjoyed the visit to the Museum of Illusions. It is exciting and educational. Also you can take a lot of great photos.
