The Museum of Illusions, after its international success, has now opened in Athens. It allows visitors to be creative and play. In addition, it is a special choice for hosting and organizing other events, corporate meetings or presentations.
In a building with a total area of more than 400m2, fun games teach about vision, perception, human brain and science, making it easier to understand why the eyes see things that the brain cannot perceive. The exhibits are based on mathematics, biology and psychology. They deceive and confuse the visitor’s belief in his own senses, while at the same time amaze and educate him. The game room with exciting and educational games and puzzles is yet another surprise.
