Ride aboard the Titanic, find yourself among giant toys or attempt a zombie escape... A visitor to the Museum of Illusions is not a passive observer but a full-fledged participant of the paintings created by the best artists. This is a place where...more
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours
calle Pintor Fortuny, 17 | Junto a las Ramblas, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Totally not worth the price.
Just some painted walls that have nothing to do with illusions, optical or physical.
I don’t recommend visiting this museum with the thousands of other possibilities in this wonderful city, Barcelona.
Recently visited here with my partner. We got a voucher through Groupon so it was only €7 (€3.50 each) for the two of us. I really don't think it is worth the €10 each you would pay at the entrance.
Some of the paintings were...More
I went to this place with my family really expecting a lot of visually innovative and interactive illusions. Was a trifle disappointed to discover it is just series of cleverly painted scenes on walls and floors into which the visitor can somehow appear to be...More
First off, the staff at counter were not friendly.

Probably intentions to visit Museum of Illusions were higher than reality. Unfortunatelly pictures are mostly for kids, not running with now a days technologies. After first look it's getting too boring.
You have to be young or young at heart (or perhaps have warped sense humor) to enjoy this “museum.” It is really just 40-50 photo opportunities- but it is a blast. If you laughed when you read the museum description you will love it. Come...More
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
