  • Had a good time. Lots of photo chances and many games to keep you busy. The guide inside was very welcoming and helpful throughout our visit. Perhaps it could be less pricy, but that’s about my only concern.
  • Its a nice but small museum. Though most people might have seen many of the illusions on the internet, it has still lot to offer in the mirror illusions and sensory illusions. My 2 year old daughter loved the place especially the vertigo room. Highly recommended for families with young kids. At 17 Lari an adult its fairly priced too.
  • Everyone who enjoys optical illusions and challenging puzzles should definitely pay a visit. We had so much fun and took some hilarious photos, I can still laugh about!!
  • Maybe too small but you can have fun. It s cool thing to do if it's raining
  • Finding this place could be an adventure in itself. It is located in the Old District, lost among derelict houses and narrow winding streets. The museum is quite small. This space could have provided a comfortable home to a small family. But you could say that the staff are like a small family. They might also treat you like a member of their family. The museum focuses on illusions. Some are simply drawings you probably have seen online, like the Impossible Triangle or two lines which appear of different lengths. Luckily, the museum does feature one or two illusions that only work in real life. So, you may have read about Ames's Room, but here you can actually go into one. For me, this was the main reward for coming to this museum. It is a really interesting illusion, if you are interested in how the mind and vision work. Another noteworthy illusion is the small catwalk in a room, where you are trapped into believing that the ground is rotating. If not for the rails, your brain would make you fall over on a perfectly stationary and still ground. You cannot experience that online either. The rest of the illusions can easily be experienced and comprehended online, without taking a trouble to visit the museum. Still, one or two are just fun, even of they provide no insight into your brain's inner workings. For example, the Upside Down Room could be used for taking some cool pictures, but you will have to use your imagination - it is not really well thought-through for cool pictures. In addition to illusions, the museum features some puzzles as well. But this part is less exciting: if you are even moderately interested in puzzles, you will see nothing new. But as with some of the illusions, it could still be amusing to play with a table-sized version of your familiar puzzles, like the car park game.
