Our Visit to the Museum of Illusions in Al Seef Dubai

My wife and I visited the Museum of Illusions in Al Seef Dubai. After checking out from our staycation at Al Seef Heritage Hotel, we went to this popular tourist attraction for an afternoon of discovery and fun.

The Museum of Illusions originates from Croatia when the first museum opened in 2015. Since then, they have also set up in other locations including Germany, Austria, Serbia, Malaysia, Slovenia, Oman and of course, here in Dubai, UAE. This has made them become the world’s fastest museum chain.

An Afternoon at Museum of Illusions Dubai

While the UAE houses many museums that showcase country’s history, culture and art, the Museum of Illusions is different in a sense that guests can take part and engage in each installation.

You can stand upside down, shrink or become a giant, go inside an infinity room full of mirrors, or pass through a swirling vortex tunnel. This is an attraction fit for the whole family and friends for a nice visit. Check out some of the photos we’ve taken below:

The staff mentioned that we would spend a minimum of 45 minutes if we go over each area. Overall we spent about 1.5 hours. The above pictures are only a few of the main highlights during our visit.

The museum is really a great place especially for children. However, adults will also have fun when you check it out.

During our visit, we would like to thank and express appreciation for the friendly Filipino staff. Especially to Mae who proactively offered to assist us when we were confused at a certain area. She immediately offered to take our photos and showed us what’s special in each illusion.
