After more than 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 underwent a huge overhaul this summer to refresh and revamp its offering of mind-bending experiences.
Now, with extensive work completed the Museum of Illusions will reopen tomorrow, Saturday, November 4, offering a brand-new experience.
Proclaiming itself the sole “edutainment” attraction in the Chicagoland region, Landmark District’s Museum of Illusions offers a “unique blend of education and entertainment through immersive illusions.”
Having expanded by more than 30% and added 20 new exhibits, guests can now immerse themselves in a total of over 80 dazzling exhibits, each offering something different from the last.
Be it seemingly dangling from a second-story window of a classic Chicago home or enjoying cherished classics such as the Vortex Tunnel and Ames Room, the range of experiences unravels the secrets of how eyes can deceive the brain with adventures “through the realms of vision, perception, and the human mind.”
Countless Instagrammable moments along the way offer the chance to snap mind-boggling photos of varying bewilderment.
“The museum truly feels like a completely new space, and we can’t wait to open our doors to the Chicago community,” said Stacy Stec, Director of Sales and Marketing at LOL Entertainment, the parent company of Museum of Illusions Chicago.
“With our latest additions and expansion, we’re pushing the boundaries even further when it comes to unraveling the mysteries of perception. We’ve curated Chicago-specific installations, promising guests and visitors an unprecedented journey through illusions that will surprise even our most loyal patrons.”
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” offering an array of exhibits containing “holograms, stereograms, optical illusions, and immersive rooms” according to the Museum of Illusions website.
The Chicago Museum of Illusions is located at 25 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602.
