    So Much Fun
    I came here with my friend on our final day in Krakow. There was a tiny bit of a queue to get in but no bother! Every single illusion blew us away. We spent so much time on each of them. Absolutely fascinating, thought-provoking and some fantastic photos opportunities too. A great way to spend an hour or two, particularly during times of ugly weather.
    Hello, thank you so much for visiting us and sharing this amazing review! We are so glad to hear that our museum turned out to be for you such a fantastic adventure! We hope that the photos you've taken will bring back all the fun you had visiting us! Dawid

    Great fun, good value for money and friendly staff
    Was an enjoyable experience, staff were super friendly and interactive which definitely made the experience better as they gave us some tricks and tips for the illusions. The bottom floor is abit boring maybe a couple of good things but the top floor was where all the fun was and a great opportunity to take funny photos. Was good value for money, you get what you pay for which was not very expensive at all in £’s so would recommend to those who want something fun to do for an hour

    One of the best attractions in Kraków: the museum of illusions
    It was my second time going to a museum of illusions and it's way better than in my home country. Even though I've already seen similar stuff in my home country's museum (I'm aware that you cannot have completely unique exhibitions, after all it's a museum of illusions), some of these blew my mind! Especially the 'upside down' room where we had a blast taking photos and the 'light room' was also a perfect spot for taking a few instagram worthy shots. In fact, the whole museum is a perfect spot to take some photos, so if you're interested in that, I highly suggest you visit this museum. There's also one cool thing - a safe that nobody can open and nobody knows what's inside! There's a combination of numbers, but nobody could figure it out, so I also suggest trying it. Overall, this museum shouldn't be skipped if you're visiting Kraków because you'll have the time of your life. The museum's shop also has some cool stuff so check that out, too!
    Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write such an amazing review! We are so pleased to hear that you spent a fantastic time in our museum and you had so much fun! We hope that the photos you have taken will be an amazing reminder of this visit and that good memories will stay with you for a long time! And definitely, if anyone will be able to open the safe, we are curious about what is inside as well! Dawid

    Must visit place, whether with kids or without
    Went there with my wife and 8 year old son - what an amazing experience 😁 After walking around the city for a few hours this is exactly what we needed to have some relaxing fun filled with laughter and fooling around. But apart from just the fun stuff, for those that like it, there is some interesting historical context associated with many of the exhibits - but don't worry, if that is not your cup of tea just skip the printed texts next to the exhibits and have fun. Museum is also full of helpful staff that can further explain some exhibits and how to interact with them. For those of you that like posting on social media, rest assured you will leave with plenty of photos to play with and post. Overall fully recommend visiting (price of admission also very acceptable and appropriate).

    This will blow your mind - literally
    The most friendly people in Krakow - everyone speaks great English and are eager to both help, explain and repeat with a smile. The exhibition itself is really amazing. Some of the illusions require a bit of patience for smaller kids (we travelled with a 6 year old) to understand the context. Almost all of these illusions are mind blowing in their own way. Free lockers for your bags and coats and clean toilets. Once you have visited the entire exhibition, then roam around freely and try your favorites again. You can spend days there (if they allow you to stay overnight).
    Hello, thank you so much for this amazing review and recommendation! We are especially grateful for the appreciation of our fantastic super-friendly guides! We are glad that you spent a happy time and had fun in our museum! We hope to see you again! Dawid

    Great museum for kinds, we recommend to have tour with guide Yuliya!
    We had very good trip into illusions! Due to guide Yuliya our visit to museum became a real adventure! Yuliya told great stories about each room, our kids (4 and 9 y.old) had funny time! Due to Yuliya we spend in the museum more than 1 hour, which is for kids not usual. Thank you for this great guided tour!

    Worth a visit
    Really enjoyed the visit. Lots of tactile attractions. We had 4 young kids ages between 8 and 4 woth us and they loved the experience which got their young brains thinking. Emilia who worked there was also very helpful and she took a few brilliant photos for our group. Thanks so much.

I wasn’t expecting too much but we had such a fun time here, it is very interactive and engaging and the staff were so helpful and attentive, without being too overbearing. I have never looked at every exhibit before in a museum but I took time to see everything here. I would defiantly recommend coming here to while away an hour/hour and half. Special thanks to Bogdan who was such a informative and friendly guide.

Apart from the restaurants in old town, almost everything is closed on New Year’s Day. Luckily we found this museum open.

It’s a bit expensive but a lot of fun and the staff help you out with the illusions and offer to take photos for you.

I went here on my last day (Tuesday) and it was pretty quiet, so it felt like i had the place to myself.
I spent just over an hour and really enjoyed it. They staff were so friendly and know their stuff. I was with Jakub, most of the tour, who went through and explained everything to me. He's a fountain of knowledge. (Give this lad a raise)
Overall i was delighted to see what was on show. The writing on the wall with a torch was mind blowing. It's a must visit. Very reasonably priced too at 50 Zly

Exceptional displays and often informative of the science behind different optical illusions. Very apt if you’re in Kraków and want an enjoyable trip, however this only last around 30 minutes and some parts will have a build up of people as there didn’t seem to be any set capacity for the museum, which has its pros and cons. This is still an extremely fun attraction and is worth the visit.
