What to Expect?

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:
The Chair Illusion
It just doesn’t look right, does it? It is unbelievable how the perceived size of a person depends on the objects surrounding it. Explore the laws of perception and play with different roles and sizes by swapping places on the chair!
In this room, walking back and forth either grows or shrinks right before your eyes. What seems like an ordinary room is in fact a masterly distorted one that plays a trick with our perception of depth!
Lean like Michael Jackson, effortlessly? Sure, only in this room! This room will make you question the laws of physics, and you might have hard time walking through it in balance!
Swap Nose Mirror
This trippy mirror has you standing on one side and another person on another, and have your mouth and nose swapped with each other. Works better than a snapchat filter and guarantees a great laughter!
Is it upside down? No it isn’t, or is it really though? This amazing room is a great opportunity to take some craziest photos to show off to you friends – your imagination is the limit!
One of the MOST impressive exhibits! You walk in to be greeted by another 20 of your own self! Mirrors at full height are installed all around, creating an optical illusion of an infinite space. It’s almost like a movie set - you could take some most awesome photos in this room!
The Vortex tunnel

I went last Sunday.Entrance ticket is RM40/Malaysian adult. It's a nice place to have in KL. If you wanna come, bring at least a friend so you can have someone to take picture with and share the fun.

Such a fun experience at the museum of illusions.
We can spend 1-2 hours easily with all the activities.
Fun to go with kids as they soak in the science of everything.
Definitely worth a visit.

A decent place to spend an hour or two. My kid enjoyed it. Felt slightly overpriced for the amount of entertainment. But otherwise a good place to go if you have time. Buying tickets online may save you on ticket price.

RM81 for four persons.
We enjoyed almost all the illusions in there.
Small and compact. Not advisable to come during peak time.
For us, it was convenient enough.
The assistants were really helpful in getting our pictures right. They are really patient.
I enjoy doing the 3D drawing. It was mesmerising.
Although we enjoyed it but not many may repeat the trip.
