The curiosity about how illusion shows are a topic that attracts everyone’s attention from seven to seventy. Even though we know that a trick is varitic in the show, the excellence in the presentation and the amazing scene that emerges are worth seeing. The idea of an illusion museum, which expresses a project design that will deeply satisfy the curiosity against the illusion, came to life in Zagreb in 2015. The second stop of the museum which attracted great attention was Berlin. Afterwards, the museum opened its doors in Athens, New York and 15 different cities and finally meets the lovers of illusion at Narmanlı Han on İstiklal Street in Istanbul.

Let us express that the museum opened in Narmanlı Han consists of 3 floors. There are more than 60 activities in the museum that can be visited as a family. What draws the most attention is the materials used in illusion shows. In addition, visitors can get to know and experiment with the tools that provide the illusion show. Infinity Room, Ames Room, Tunnel and Upside Down House are some of the illusion rooms you can try in the museum.
Istanbul Illusion Museum is not like a classical museum. When you visit a museum, taking pictures or touching the artifacts is the last thing you would desire. This negatively affects the experience of your museum visit. However, you can explore everything in the illusion museum, touch it, experience the illusion rooms and experience a different day in terms of visual and sensory.
The most exciting one of the illusion rooms that will allow you to have fun moments is the tunnel called Vortex. When you decide to enter this tunnel and show courage, you may find yourself turning in a cylindrical structure. Being able to step in the moving cylinder is becoming very difficult and exciting. Oddly enough, you are in a flat room that cannot actually turn. However, the perception of entering the tunnel is cylindrical and evocative that you are in a moving place. The other rooms are as exciting as the tunnel. In the infinity chamber, you can feel like someone resisting gravity.
There are not only illusion rooms in the museum. There are also articles and collections used during illusion shows. One of them is the hologram collection. These pieces must also be seen. When you discover how misleading the effect of each part on the senses is, your ideas about the brain and perception may change. This is the purpose of the museum anyway. Entertain and teach while learning about the brain.
