Overview

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 photography is part and parcel of the exhibition. The museum of illusions is intended to fill visitors' photo albums with vivid and unusual photographs.

I was very disapointed. Bad paintings with even bad lighting. Ridiculous price of 10 € for that garbadge. Good only for kids.

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

Definitely worth a visit, the art is fantastic and you can be very creative with your photos! Only criticism would be staff didn’t seem very friendly on entrance, but still worth going.

Shop converted into "museum" with some paintings on the wall for cell phone pics. Cannot call this more than street art exhibit. Nothing special. Waste of time considering all the other things to see in Barcelona.

You can enjoy and have a good time here while taking cool and funny pictures only for 5 €. Be creative!

Visited here and was surprised by the varied illusions on display. I really enjoyed the two rooms that confuse your senses and my wife still can't understand how the seat on rollers goes uphill! Find time to visit. Highly recommended

The paintings are made with strange perspectives so that if you stand in front of them a certain way, and the person with camera stands a certain way, it will look like you’re part of the picture. It’s an interesting concept; it works for most...More

Not really a museum but a number of paintings on a wall, by standing in a specific point it gives an illusion that you are in a scene. OK for a wet afternoon but a little silly and at £10 each a bit steep for...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
