Ride aboard the Titanic, find yourself among giant toys or attempt a zombie escape...

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.

First off, the staff at counter were not friendly. Secondly : it was extremely hard to get good pictures due to the buildings terrible overhead lighting. (It was fun and would be great for families however). I will include some of the best pictures we...More

The only illusion worth speaking of is the illusion this place gave of being somewhere actually worth visiting. This is not a museum. It is a series of backdrops you can stand by and take pictures. If you are so desperate for quirky Instagram pics...More

We didn't like this place. We thought there would be some optical illusions etc. However, it is a small place with painting on the wall. You stand close to the walls and get someone to take your picture making you look to be part of...More

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.

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

El Raval
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
