Chicago’s Museum of Illusions opened in 2021 adding another option to Chicago’s array of awe-inspiring museums and immersive experiences, albeit slightly whackier than the rest. Now, after two years of providing locals and tourists alike with a visual, sensory, and educational interactive experience for all ages, the museum at 25 East Washington Street has closed for a huge revamp.
Taking to social media this week, the Museum of Illusions announced that it will be closed for construction for the rest of summer as it works on an all-new experience that will feature “never-before-seen exhibits”.
According to the museum’s press release, the museum will expand its exhibit space by more than 30% and bring in over 20 brand-new mind-bending exhibits proving guests with a refreshed range of photo opportunities and optical illusions.
“Late Fall 2023” is when the museum plans to host a grand opening with an all-new set of attractions.
Made up of educational exhibits all based on math, science, and psychology, the Museum of Illusions prides itself on being “like no place you’ve been before.” According to the Museum of Illusions website, the interactive “edutainment” destination features an array of exhibits containing “holograms, stereograms, optical illusions, and immersive rooms that are designed to tease the senses and trick the mind.”
