The staff, especially the manager Jaka, was great! So friendly and nice, willing to explain everything we wanted to know. The exhibits of illusions were very interesting and it was fun allround, especially for our 10-year-old boy :) At the end of excursion you can play tricky mind games. The whole tour take app. 1,5 - 2 hours. So take time and enjoy yourself while staying in Ljubljana ;)

It’s a small museum so only takes about 30-40min. There’s a few fun things to do but nothing to special. Would recommend to do it in the evening after you’ve spent your time sightseeing.

This place was interesting. Was quite small, however the illusions they did have were pretty good. They have a room of wooden puzzles. My husband managed most of them, however the one he couldn’t do he ended up purchasing from their shop! Good place to visit on a rainy day. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Maybe we will come back one day when my husband finally manages that wooden cube!!!

I thought it would be a fun experience considering how highly rated it is. However, I think most people will already have seen a lot of what is on display. They have a game room, which could be fun if you are visiting with kids. All in all, an ok visit, but I was disappointed and definitely think it is overrated.

First time I went in Croatia. We ended up with an extra day in Ljubljana due to a cancelled flight so we decided to check it out. Fun for all ages. Would recommend if you have a lot of time in Ljubljana but otherwise, it's missable.

I and a group of friends visited the House of Illusions late on a Friday after eating at the Open food market. Having our City Tourists cards, entrance is included and our cards were scanned at the desk. The House encompasses a couple of floors, and includes a number of different illusions including the upside down room and the vortex tunnel (very freaky - dont enter if you have vertigo).

We spent a good hour or so looking and interacting with the different displays and had a great time and quite a few laughs and one of our group even ended up playing a (Board) game of Vortex with the young lady on the desk - he lost :-)

A Very fun exhibit to visit with friends.

We'd bought the Ljubljana Card and were pleased this attraction was included as entrance of €11 was a little much as it's only 2 floors and a puzzle room. Many of the pictures were very well known illusions but the interactive elements really made our visit and were cleverly organised with smartphone camera stands to record and share our fun!

My girlfriend and I went to this museum Sunday evening at 8pm. The place was empty, which is what we were hoping for. We were able to play for almost 2 hours in the various rooms, taking interesting/unique photos of each other and the illusions all over the place. We absolutely loved it and highly suggest going in the evening (it’s open til 10pm) when there are no families/kids.

Nice little museum, good for a few silly photos and a nice play to dive in should you get caught in a thunderstorm. Not expensive either. If you're popping by it's worth a look in.

Except a few (one or 2) good quality illusions, the remaining you might have seen on whatsapp as messages over the past few years. The area on the ground floor with displays and fun and puzzle for Children was good. Not worth the money.
