Located in the heart of KL city within the Bukit Bintang area, Museum of Illusions (MOI) Kuala Lumpur re-opened its door in June 2022 after the pandemic closure, featuring a new layout and more unique exhibits. It is a must-visit attraction when you are in the vicinity.

The family-friendly museum offers over 70 exhibits and illusionary and interactive rooms. On top of that, there’s about 40 different dilemma games for you to solve. It is a one-of-a-kind ‘edutainment’ destination that’s all about optical illusions. Guests of all ages will laugh and have fun, but they’ll also learn a thing or two about illusions, vision, and perception.

The establishment is located within Ansa Hotel, which is a mere 4-minute walk away from KL Pavilion.

The key draw factor of the museum is that they don't just have those 'standard' illusuion setup, there are some really unique attractions that were well designed:
