This was a brilliant visit, wasn't really sure what to expect when I visited late this afternoon but was very pleasantly surprised by it.
Pretty much every illusion in the museum is amazing and will leave you scratching your head.
My guide Kasia, was brilliant... she was very knowledgeable and helpful with every single illusion and spoke perfect English and also took some great photos for me.
If I come to Krakow again I will certainly give the place another visit and will recommend it to any of my friends that want to visit Krakow in the future 😊

We have a few days in Krakow and found ourselves with some time on our hands. So we looked at the leaflets in the hotel and decided to go to the Museum of illusions. What a great choice. This was 2hrs well spent going round the museum and playing with all of the interactive exhibits. There are plenty of very friendly helpful staff on hand to show visitors what to do and explain the illusions. Time well spent and worth a visit.

This small museum is a wonderful place to while away an hour or so! Fascinating exhibits, many of which are interactive and all of which are guaranteed to incite a gasp of disbelief or a smile. The museum staff are so friendly and cheerful, very knowledgeable about the exhibits and so happy to help with an explantation or demonstration. We absolutely loved it!

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

Approximately £10 each to visit. Guide called Bogdan was always on hand to explain how things worked and the physics behind the illusions. Great for adults and kids. You wander round at your leisure. Something different and fun.

This little museum was not something on our to do list, we were told about it by another British couple. But so glad we found it! It's a little bit tucked away and we probably would have walked straight past it had it not been for Google maps 😂 fascinating interactive illusions. The staff were really friendly and on hand to take photos!

Hi Mollie! It's great you have eventually found us and had a lot of fun wandering among different illusions. Those are the stories we like hearing the most: one person learning about the museum from another, who was happy enough to recommend it. Regards, Kinga, Team Krakil.

This museum is fantastic! Excellent value for the experience you gain. Tickets are £8 per person and the place is full of suprises. Walking around you get to participate in lots of physics experiments as well has having your mind blown by some clever tricks. The staff are extemely warming and are happy to help, take photos and explain the science behind the illusions. I highly recommend you give this place a visit, it doesn't get the credit it deserves.

We visited as we had a couple of hours to fill before dinner and the museum didn't disappoint. Although it's only small it's filled with loads of interactive displays and is great fun for couples or small groups to take photos. The staff were also brilliant, they went above and beyond to make sure we could use all the displays and get the photos we wanted. Would recommend to anyone visiting.
