Prague’s Museum of Fantastic Illusions (also known as the Illusion Art Museum) is a rather unusual and, frankly, unique place. Walk through the doors and you’re guaranteed an entertaining and, above all, interactive experience that will surprise you and make you laugh, whatever your age.

What to do when you visit the Museum of Fantastic Illusions?

During your visit to this museum, you’ll be able to do quite a few things! The first is to enjoy the interactive exhibits:

  • Distorting mirrors,
  • Trompe-l’œil,
  • Smells
  • Optical illusions, you won’t be disappointed…

But don’t forget to bring your smartphone or camera!

Because that’s probably the second most fun thing you can do: take memorable shots. At every stop you make, you can take one! There are even facilities to help you position yourself in the best spot to get the perfect shot.

Last but not least, you can take part in workshops and demonstrations. In fact, we regularly organize workshops where you can learn a little more about optical illusions and how they work. And, of course, you can create your own vote!

Who are the artists exhibiting at the Illusion Art Museum?

Several artists are exhibited in the museum. The best-known of these is Patrick Hughes, a highly regarded British artist who works with perspective like no other.

Local artists include Patrik Prošek (and his anamorphic 3D installations), and Ladislav Vlna and his metallurgical paintings. Add to this fine list artists such as Ivana Štenclová, Zdeněk Daňek and Jan Jírovec.
