Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw – the best attractions

We literally lost our heads when entering the Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw. Actually, we left them on the plate. It was enough to go under the table for magic to happen! Calmly, our heads returned to their right places without any problems.

Moments later we had to fight our way through the Vortex Tunnel. At first glance, it is just a bridge running through the center of a circular rotating cylinder. It looks very innocent and inviting. Upon entering, it turns out to be a crazy centrifuge at full speed. An unforgettable adventure, our brains and labyrinths have gone crazy. This time we didn’t lose our heads, only our balance.

Our hearts were also stolen by a modest kaleidoscope. It gives the impression of a small mirror triangle. But when you approach it or put your head inside, its reflection is cloned an infinite number of times. That looks great in a photo (see below) or a video (see: Tik-Tok/IG). In one moment, thousands of Patryks appeared in front of me.

Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw – other attractions

The attractions that were on the podium are, of course, only a small part of what happened to us at the Museum World of Illusions. We also entered the mirror rooms where we miraculously multiplied.

Playing with the perspective was great too. We stood face to face with a voracious animal jumping out of the wall. Then we seated Patrick comfortably in Buchet’s red chair.

We have been misled by optical illusions more than once. The first one, the so-called ‘concave mask illusion’, made us feel a bit creepy. When we looked at Einstein’s face, it turned out that her expression changed depending on our position.

We also tried to play the flat piano. We didn’t manage to get any sound out of it, but it looked so realistic. Finally in Ames Room we made Patrick a bit smaller.

We documented everything in the pictures, and you can see the evidence in this post. Not all of the photos turned out to be perfect – we keep our fingers crossed for you to do better. Finally, we will only add that the World of Illusions Museum is a completely different dimension of entertainment.

You can get here by car, bus, tram and metro. Regardless of the means of transport, however, you will have a short walk, because the World of Illusions Museum is located at the Old Town Square (No. 21) where entry is prohibited.

Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw – tips

  • Read the descriptions of attractions carefully. There you will find not only instructions on how to take a good photo but also interesting stories and surprising curiosities.
  • You don’t have a private photographer? Do not be afraid to talk to other visitors. All the photos in which we are the two of us were taken by strangers and no one refused. It is also a good training for establishing interpersonal relationships. 😉
  • If you go to the World of Illusions, be sure to take advantage of the fact that it is located in the very center of the capital – visit the Old Town Square and the Castle Square. You will feel the atmosphere of historic Warsaw.

Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw – worth it?

  • Patrix – 9/10. The two hours at the World of Illusion were very pleasant. We have already been to several museums related to magic and illusion and many attractions are repeated in all these places. However, the Museum World of Illusion has by far the most unique exhibits. We haven’t seen the Vortex Tunnel or the ‘magic table’ anywhere else. It’s definitely worth experiencing.
  • Wiolczix – 8/10. We are quite experienced when it comes to ‘magical attractions’ and this is probably the best place of this type in Poland. In the Museum World of Illusion in Warsaw I lost my head for the first time ever! Vortex Tunnel made me so dizzy. Praise to the creators for providing detailed descriptions of each attraction.
