Istanbul Museum of Illusions Istiklal

This Museum is a place that brings joy to people of all ages. It is a beautiful place to take some photos for your Instagram feed and you will have much pleasure in several rooms with many illusions. We shall suggest you pay a visit here for adventure and fun.

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.

There are more than 60 attractions to enjoy at the Museum. Also, visitors can get to know and try the tools that make the illusion show appear. Infinity Room, Ames Room, tunnel and upside-down house are a few of the illusion rooms you can try in the Museum.

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.

The Final word

The Museum of Illusions is undoubtedly a place to divert your consciousness from dull and dreary thoughts. It will give your mind a dose of humor and boggle it to experience fun and entertainment. Get your cameras ready to see and capture yourself enjoying to your full. Museum of Illusion will take you on a roller coaster. Istanbul E-pass will help you to experience this tremendous attraction.
