Educational and inspiring,

fascinating and extraordinary.

We love discovering new illusions for our exhibition and to try them out ourselves!

What are we engaged in?

Our team cares about answering your questions about illusions, imparting knowledge in the guided tours of the museum, and sharing ideas with you.

It is important to us to share our fascination with you. Through this dialogue, inspiration for new paths emerges...

And so we can constructively expand our exhibition.

In a digitalized world, we are still playing with analog illusions that inspire children and adults alike and make them think.

For a sustainable learning effect.

Educational and inspiring, fascinating and extraordinary, these are our guidelines how we would like to meet you, our visitors.

Outlook: We are growing and soon we will get more square meters for our illusions and this will not be an optical illusion - or maybe it will?...

Interactive Illusions
at the Illuseum Berlin

Our interactive illusions can be experienced and photographed perfectly. If you need help with this, our friendly staff is always at your disposal.

One of the oldest illusions is the kaleidoscope, which impressively exemplifies how the correct utilization of mirrors and angles can deceive our senses. Try counting how many faces you see during your visit with us. By the way, the word kaleidoscope stems from the Greek and means “seeing beautiful shapes”.

The Illuseum for Kids

The children can become part of the optical illusions themselves and, in an interactive way, learn just how easily the brain can be tricked and how often things are quite different from what they may seem at first glance.

We recommend a minimum age of 6 years. Although many areas offer opportunities to take funny photographs, most of our exhibits are hung on the walls. Those are all about questioning reality in order to grasp the illusions.

The human brain is only able to differentiate between reality and illusion at age 6 and over. This rule is not intended to exclude anyone, but rather to ensure that even our youngest guests are well entertained.

For this reason, there is no entrance fee for children under the age of 6.

Magic at the Illuseum Berlin

Who is up for an illusionistic magic show?

„Eigentlich kann ich gar nicht zaubern,… ich tue nur so!“ so unser Zauberer Jan. Obwohl er dies in fast jeder Vorführung erwähnt, gibt es immer wieder Zuschauer jeden Alters, die ihm das nicht so ganz glauben wollen.
This special magic show appeals to young and old.

Our magician Jan prepares an entertaining show with amazing magic tricks and close-up magic.
