Dubai is filled with attractions that not only catches your eye but some of them even tend to stop your breath with their magnificence and marvelousness. Dubai is indeed the playground for the rich. It is quite possible that you see its world-famous attraction and don’t believe your eye. Among many exotic and eye-catching must-see attractions of Dubai, the Dubai Museum of Illusions is one of them. Actually, it is the extension of the international museum chain which was inaugurated in Zagreb, Croatia in 2018. Biggest one of them is The Dubai edition with 80-plus interactive exhibits. The enchanting world of illusions is designed to trick your minds, challenge your senses, fuel your imagination, educate you and thoroughly confuse you as nothing is what it seems.
We would repeat ourselves, ‘nothing is what it seems’ and why should it be, when a team of highly skilled architects and designers from Croatia have used their skill sets along with science, mathematics, biology, and psychology to precisely fool your eye and brain. The exhibit developed falls under three categories, Master Illusions, Grand Illusions, and Optical Illusions. Designed to be enjoyed by all age groups, the museum allows the visitors to become part of the exhibits and click tons of pictures. The interactive exhibits are entertaining and educational as they push you to discover the science behind them. The 450 square meter venue includes attraction such as the Vortex Tunnel, the Chair Illusion, gravity-defying slanted room, the Infinity Room, and the Ames room.
The Dubai Museum of Illusions is a must-watch attraction for the locals and the visitors. At least once in our lifetime, we all are guilty of clicking illusionistic pictures such as pinching the top of the Eiffel tower. Dubai Museum of illusions offers an innumerable number of worth envying pictures of you levitating, shrinking or over-sizing in Alice in Wonderland style. The walls of the Museum carry a collection of bewildering images using color, light, and patterns that will trick your eyes into playing tricks with your brain. Just stare at them for 30 seconds or less and you will see things moving, shrinking, disappearing and what not. There Holograms are images that create 3D illusions.
The Dubai edition proudly boasts the largest collection of holograms images, which vary from holographic portraits to horror-grams to images that can appear and disappear before your eyes to images that transform from one kind to another. You can’t visit the desert and miss one of its most famous phenomena the Mirage. Though this is within the confines of the museum, the principle is the same. The projected object will look and feel like a real 3D object, even after you try and grab it and catch nothing. A stereogram is a picture within a picture. The three-dimensional image puzzle has a hidden 3D object inside each of the unusual looking 2D picture. You can only discover the 3D image if viewed correctly. It might take an attempt or two to figure out what is hidden in those pictures. Head on the platter is an illusion so brilliantly created that even when you know where is the rest of the body is hidden, it still comes as a surprise seeing just ahead on the platter. Imagine yourself as the magician’s muse and surrender your head for a very cool headshot.
