Musée de l'Illusion - Paris

98 rue Saint-Denis - 75001 Paris

Châtelet - Les Halles - 1er Arrondissement


My first is surreal, my second is as educational as it is playful and my third is unique curiosity. Who am I?..... An optical illusion! People know me without knowing me, they fear me because I am so intriguing, they observe me curiously, they judge me without knowing who I really am. Our concept? Exercise our brain by providing a scientific and rational explanation for what our eyes can neither explain nor understand. After having proven its worth in more than 17 countries, Paris is now home to our internationally renowned Museum. Amazing, isn't it? To go to the Museum of Illusions is to challenge the laws of gravity, to be surprised and intellectually challenged while having fun. With family and friends, wherever you come from and whatever your age, we open the doors of this parallel world to you.
