The Museum of Illusions is a museum of fun and educational experience, where you can test the limits of your perception. Inside, relativity is something that you experience quite literally. The illusions provide a different experience of space and everything you think you know about it.
In the museum, each visitor is encouraged to think about perception, the human brain and science through the various installations in the form of holograms, puzzles and much more. Despite the fact that it has “museum” in its name, it is okay here to scream, laugh, run around, touch and be interactive with anything ‘on exhibit’. The central purpose of the museum is that it is fun, informative and, above all, different from other museums.
The museum offers around 40 exhibits, optical illusions and holograms. Smaller installations such as the Mirror of Truth, Rubin’s Vase and Albert Einstein’s Hollow Face can be found throughout the museum. Photos and holograms change, appear and disappear in front of your eyes.
In the museum, you will also find various rooms of illusion: the anti-gravity room, a rotated room, the infinity disco room, the vortex tunnel and a playroom with didactic-logical games and enigmas.
Oscar Wilde said that ‘illusion is the first of all pleasures’. In the Museum of Illusions you have the chance to find out how true that is…

DID YOU KNOW
Although the Museum of Illusions is new to Ljubljana, it’s not the first of its kind in Europe. Zadar, Croatia, also has a Museum of Illusions, as does Barcelona, Moscow and St Petersburg. Taking care of the smooth functioning, fresh breezes and crazily innovative ideas in the museum in Ljubljana are nine young people who enjoy the illusions and get to experience them every single day.
The museum is located at Congress Square (Kongresni trg), which is one of Ljubljana’s central squares, so the Museum of Illusions is hard to miss. There are plenty of important monuments around the square and you’ll find the University of Ljubljana and Slovenian Philharmonic buildings there too. Next to the square is Zvezda Park, which stretches across the central part of the square and is also the site of several historical attractions, such as the gilded bronze statue of a Roman patrician.
