Top ways to experience Museum of Illusions Athens
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.

Magic. Απλά μαγικά

We had a great time. The kids and the adults were fascinated. Some exhibits are magical.
I also have to mention the staff which is fantastic. Thank you for the help.
We will definitely visit it again. Don't forget to buy a wooden toy before you leave.

Museum of objects next to mirrors
Sep 2021 • Couples
If putting a mirror next to half a cube to reveal a full cube is an illusion, or five mirrors next to 1/6 of a table to reveal a full table is an illusion, then it was great.

Good fun
Sep 2021 • Couples
Very fun museum. There’s a lot of serious archaeological stuff to see in Athens and plenty to learn - this museum makes for a lighthearted change when you’ve been looking at more historical pieces for a while. Had a good time, took some goofy photos.

Surprisingly interesting and engaging
I didn’t think it would be much, the kids insisted that we would go but surprisingly it is very entertaining. Very engaging and friendly staff as well.

Beside the historical things it’s definitely on the Athen‘s to do list. Very cool things & a nice staff. We were there in the evening, less people so you don‘t have to wait long. We just can recommend it:)
