Hamburg, place to experience illusions!

The Museum of Illusion in Hamburg is suitable for all generations. It’s a unique place for new experiences and fun with friends and family. Not only is it a place for children but also a place for parents, couples, students, grandmothers and grandfathers.

Enjoy our collection of holograms, look closer at every optical illusion and thoroughly observe each installation. They are a playful reminder that our assumptions about the world are often nothing but illusions. Amusing and awesome tricks will teach you about vision, perception, the human brain and make it easier to understand why we see things differently than they actually are. Make sure you try out our entertaining and educational games and puzzles. These brain bashers are definitely great fun but tend to be frustrating as well…

Come and explore the world of illusions. Experience the impossible. Don’t forget your camera!
