Museum of Illusions (Muscat)

I would like to introduce the Museum of Illusions-Muscat which recently opened at the Muscat grand Mall. The Museum houses more than 70 entertaining and mind-bending illusions, and provides interactive educational activities about vision, perception, the human brain, and science. Each of these exhibits has been designed to not only thrill and beguile visitors, but to provide a unique opportunity from which to learn just how easily a person’s mind can be tricked.

The museum, is the first of its kind in the region and includes the largest single collection of optical illusions in the Middle East. The way our brains work is extremely complex, we don't just perceive reality just as we see or feel it. What our brain does is gather information from each of our senses, combining and enhancing some details while ignoring others, all that while filling in any gaps using its pre-existing knowledge of the world. With each of our exhibits we intentionally alter this information, and in doing so we can alter your perception of reality in surprising, intriguing, and fun ways. This museum is something you truly need to experience first-hand.

The most common type of illusions are optical. However, there are also auditory and tactile illusions. With our museum, we aim to utilise all three senses to turn the complexities of the brain and nervous system into a fun and educational experience for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

The Museum also have a smart playroom zone with lots of problem-solving games, which will absolutely blow your mind. This Museum offers a beguiling and memorable experience for your students that they will never forget. For more information please visit Protected content
