A Mind-Bending ‘Museum of Illusions’ is Opening in Dubai

Prepare yourselves for a bit of mind-bending optical fun as the Dubai Museum of Illusions prepares to open up shop in September. Here are the details

New mind-blowing Dubai museum set to open

The Museum of Illusions is opening in Dubai on September 12 in Al Seef near Dubai Creek. We’re still waiting to hear on ticket prices, but the new attraction will feature 80 interactive exhibits designed around a range of optical illusions… so get your cameras ready!

Guests can expect a visual and sensory experience throughout the space. One of the attractions on showcase will be the Vortex Tunnel, a rotating cylinder that will make guests believe the ground is shifting beneath them.

There’s also the Ames Room where visitors will shrink or grow depending on where they’re standing… a bit like Willy Wonka’s factory, don’t you think?
