4. Dubai: Museum of Illusions Entry Ticket
The Museum of Illusions in Dubai takes you on a social and entertaining journey into a magical realm which delights all generations. It’s a perfect place for new experiences, fun with friends and family, and is unique in this part of the Middle East. It's not only a place for children to play and learn, but also for parents, couples, grandmothers and grandfathers.
Summon the bravery to jump into an illusion created by the Vortex Tunnel, the first of its kind in the UAE. The tunnel will drive you crazy and make you believe the ground is shifting under your feet as you navigate through a rotating cylinder, which somehow remains a stable and flat surface. Disfigure your reflection in the Mirror Room, cut yourself loose in the Infinity Room, resist the laws of gravity and shapes, all the while taking amazing pictures of yourself in every possible pose.
Enjoy the collection of holograms, look closer at every optical illusion, and observe thoroughly each installation. They are such brilliant, playful reminders that our assumptions about the world we perceive around us are nothing but a specter of illusion.
Amusing and awesome tricks will teach you about vision, perception, the human brain and science, so it will be easier to comprehend why your eyes see things that your brain can't process. Make sure you visit the playroom with intriguing and educational games and puzzles—these brain-teasers are definitely great fun but tend to be frustrating as well.
