This is not an Illusion

This article is not about an illusion – this museum exists. However, this is the Museum of Illusions. In a year of existence, it has become a must-go place for every tourist and traveller in Zagreb. It has also become a place for children to have fun. A real fun museum 😀

Museum of Illusions, Zagreb
This is the end of the way. Or you don’t think so?

It’s perfectly necessary to be here, in order to notice the secret of this space, on the picture above. Where are these people, where the corridor begins, where it ends, where is the mirror. Or, isn’t the entire image inverted, the way that the down part of this photo shows the reflections from the ceiling mirrors? Illusions are many. But what if we forget about any spiritual, emotional, intelectual or any other abstract illusion, and focus on the sciences?

On the image below, you find a group of objects that seems to be placed right on this pedestal.

Introducing the illusion
When you approach an object…

However, when you get very closed to it, it seems that objects are placed inside the pedestal. How is it possible?

…and when you reach this object.

Inside this museum, your figure may look like this…

A very specific room…

…and when it’s crowded…

On pictures it looks so weird, but the reality is even more surprising. If you like it, you will not want to leave this room for long minutes.

This is me, in another room of this museum:

A big and a small figure. Seriously? 😀

Trust me, I’m not *that* much shorter than this guy 😀

This is just another experience you will want to figure out in this museum. Now I’m coming with the last example intended to provoke your curiosity:

Walking 😀

I’m walking between these plants, along with few other people, we are seeing sunlight, haha 😀 After all these supernatural experiences, we enjoyed playing logical games, that took us some time to figure out the solutions. Several games are available for museum visitors to play, like a fun for smart people 🙂

Soon I’ll come with much more stories from Zagreb.

This is a perfect place for family fun – the special price of 100 HRK (about 13 euros) is offered to families, and the price includes the entrance for 2 adults, and unlimited number of children – although I don’t know what would happen if you bring 10 kids to the museum 🙂
