Now open, the Museum of Illusions is a unique and exciting concept offering the opportunity to interact with and immerse oneself in over 80 fascinating illusionary exhibits.

We operate with two aims: to educate and to entertain. Our exhibits unveil the mechanics behind mind-bending illusions while also shocking the senses and playing on perception.

The story behind the Museum of Illusions began in 2015 in Zagreb, Croatia, where the first museum was opened. As of today, there are over 27 museums globally including US locations in New York, Orlando, Dallas and Kansas City. We are excited to bring this crown jewel to Chicago. The concept of the Museum is based on the principle of fun and offers an original and unique experience to visitors, locals and tourists alike.

Within the Museum, there is also a “Dilemma” indoor playroom and “Dilemma” shop where visitors of all ages can play, compete, learn and buy mind challenging toys and games that encourage creative thinking.
