You won’t believe your eyes! With over 50 intriguing exhibits, Museum of Illusions Orlando offers more eye-fooling fun under one roof than any other destination in Central Florida. We had an opportunity to check out this new attraction located in the heart of International Drive. Currently in its “preview days,” there were certainly a fair amount of guests enjoying the museum, but still not overly crowded. We know what you’re thinking – COVID and a museum? Well, please be assured the museum and its staff strictly enforce the idea of distancing among guests, and masks are required. Now, how about we take a look inside?

The Museum of Illusions reminds us a bit of the WNDR Museum in Chicago (a must-do if ever visiting the Windy City). The WNDR Museum, though, is a really rich, immersive, interactive experience whereas The Museum of Illusions is much more of a collection of exhibits that focuses on the actual science of the illusions (although there are certainly interactive experiences to be had).
Some of the exhibits we enjoyed the most are:
- Clone Table
- Hollow Face Illusion (this is the same exact technique used during a portion of the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World’s Haunted Mansion)
- Photo Illusions
- Rotated Room (image different than actual current exhibit space)
Here are some of the moments we caught from the exhibits highlighted above plus more:
From January 9-31, guests can enjoy these special “preview days” as we mentioned earlier. Pricing is $15 per person of any age – admission we think is well-worth it for at least one visit). Children two and under are free. You can purchase tickets and learn more here (not an affiliate link): Orlando.MuseumOfIllusions.us.
