Illusions always pull people of all ages. We are always curious about what we don't understand, but we can never hide our amazement while trying to understand them. The essential reason why the Museum has become one of the most fun museums is that it offers you this experience quickly from the day it opened to the present day.

How does the illusion Museum work?

Illusion Museum is not like a traditional museum. When you visit a museum, taking photos or touching artifacts is the last thing to be desired. But in the Museum of Illusion, you can explore everything, feel it, experience the rooms of fantasy, experience a different day in visual and sensory terms.

The building where the Museum is located is built-in 1831. The building has been used as the Russian Embassy until 1880. And then as the Russian prison until 1914, after which it became the Narmanli family's property. It has been referred to as "Narmanli Han" ever since. In the following years, it was used as a studio and residence.

Museum of Illusions is located on Istiklal Street. It takes around 10 minutes to walk along Istiklal Street from Taksim Square to the museum. From the square until the museum, you can see and visit many famous, historical places along the road. Like St. Antuan Church, Galatasaray Highschool etc.
