Museum of Illusions Tours

Museum of Illusions
Whether you’re fumbling your way through a mirror maze, “walking” across the ceiling, or entering a “zero-gravity” room, Zagreb’s Museum of Illusions is designed to challenge your perceptions and make science fun. One of two such museums in Croatia, it’s full of entertaining exhibits, brain-teasing puzzles, and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.

The Basics
An admission ticket for the Museum of Illusions offers access to 70 interactive exhibits. Along with the Mirror Maze and the Zero Gravity Room—where water flows uphill—highlights include numerous forced-perspective scenes, optical illusions, and holograms, as well as a playroom filled with puzzles and educational games. Bring your camera and amuse yourself taking photos of friends and family as they grow or shrink right in front of you; serve up your own head on a dinner plate; or sit in a gigantic chair.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum can be visited in under an hour, but you might want to spend longer in order to take photos and fully appreciate the exhibitions.
  • Instructions for the interactive exhibits are provided in Croatian, German, English, and Italian.
  • The museum has a shop filled with quirky gifts, puzzles, and illusion-themed items.
  • Visit with at least one or two others to make the most of the interactive exhibits.

How to Get There
The Museum of Illusions is located in Zagreb’s Lower Town, along the central Ilica boulevard. It’s about a 10-minute walk from Ban Jelačić Square, and a number of trams stop nearby—get off at Frankopanska or Britanski trg.

When to Get There
The museum is open daily all year round. The small galleries can fill up quickly, especially on weekend afternoons, meaning you’ll have to wait your turn to try out the interactive exhibits and take photos. A morning visit offers the best chance of avoiding the crowds, while evenings—the museum stays open until 10pm—tend to draw an older crowd, with fewer children.

Unique Museums in Zagreb
Zagreb’s many museums include a number of more unusual offerings. Not far from the Museum of Illusions, the Museum of Broken Relationships is a nostalgic ode to lost love. The Museum of Torture is filled with medieval torture devices, and the Museum of Mushrooms showcases some 1,500 different varieties of fungus. The Technical Museum Nikola Tesla has some great interactive science exhibitions, and the Dražen Petrović Museum is devoted to the Croatian-born NBA basketball player.

star-5
Zagreb museums have become one of the top attractions in the city. They are literally around every corner, and together, they feature more than 3.6 million exhibits. Learning about Croatian art has never been easier. Zagreb Museums provide a wide variety of treasured wonders. From the classic and traditional to the contemporary arts. All the way to the latest interactive exhibitions. Zagreb has the biggest number of museums per capita in the world! As the city is and always will be at the intersection between East and West it lives and breathes history. Unfortunately, within our over 900-year history, we had our fair share of invasion forces. The only benefit from it is the heritage and knowledge they left behind. Most of which is preserved at our museums. On the other hand, Zagreb recently features more and more new and quirky type of museums.
