The Illuseum Berlin - entertainment and sightseeing at Alexanderplatz, the center of Berlin

Alexanderplatz is a popular place for young and old in Berlin Mitte. It has attracted tourists and Berliners for decades. Day and night it is teeming with people. Whether families, couples or individual visitors, everyone wants to experience something and have fun - especially on weekends or during the vacations. If you are looking for a different kind of museum in Berlin or Brandenburg, you will find it here.

What is there to see at Alexanderplatz?

In the Illuseum Berlin, everyone gets their taste, because it is the special museum in Berlin: In addition to numerous optical illusions, there are also rooms to try out, where you become part of an illusion yourself. Photographing yourself and your loved ones in them is great fun and makes for aha moments, laughter and amazement. After all, how can it be that in the Ames room you appear huge in one corner and tiny in the other? Behind the fun is a lot of learning material: How does our brain work, when can our eyes be fooled?

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.
