Museum of Illusions to Open in January at ICON Park
Orlando is home to a wide variety of fun-filled attractions, with the Museum of Illusions being the newest addition. Set to open on 9th January 2021, this International Drive attraction will bring some mind-bending exhibitions to Florida.
The Museum of Illusions has locations in over 20 countries around the world, so you may have come across this fascinating playland before, however this is the first one to open in the state of Florida.
Museum of Illusions in Orlando will be the first Florida location for the company, which first opened in Croatia in 2015.
This unique place is a delight for all generations, as the 50 interactive exhibits teach you about vision, perception, the human brain and science, giving you an understanding of why your eyes see things which your brain cannot understand! It may confuse you completely and turn your world upside-down (literally), but these amusing and awesome tricks are sure to make a great day out in Orlando.
The Museum of Illusions is said to be the hottest new photo op in the area, with some backdrops and scenes, such as the Infinity Room and the Reverse Room, providing the perfect picture for your Instagram! In the Vortex Tunnel, you’ll experience bizarre sensations as you barrel through a far-out kaleidoscope of colours. And if you’ve ever wondered how holograms happen, you’ll learn how such seemingly complex illusions are actually part of your everyday life! There will also be a gift shop where visitors can purchase puzzles, games and other souvenirs.
“We can’t wait to bring our museum to Central Florida – there’s nothing quite like it here.” said Museum of Illusions Orlando general manager George Youngdahl.
Whether you’re curious about why we see things the way we do, looking to turn reality on its head, or wanting to flood your social media with some unique pics, you won’t want to miss the Museum of Illusions on your next Orlando holiday.
With the ongoing pandemic, the attraction will have several COVID-19 safety measures in place, including mandatory face masks, limited capacity, designated time slots for visitors and one-way systems through exhibits.
