    Must visit!
    Amazing museum, full of interactive illusions! Its takes about 50-60min to go around, but we wanted more. Great puzzles at the end. We suggest you to go with friends or family, and not alone, because its something hilarious and smart to share!
    Dear Anpanopoulos, Thank you so much for coming, we really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We are so happy to hear you had a positive experience in our museum! We hope that you'll visit us again soon! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Fun museum
    I have never been to this kind of museum before, so I have nothing to compare it with. It was fun, and many mind-twisting stations. It should have been employees helping with for instance pictures, cause it would have been fun to take pictures together at some of the stations.
    Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for coming, we're glad to hear that you had a great visit to our museum. We appreciate the feedback and hope to earn 5 stars in the future! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Definitely worth a visit
    We stopped by here when we saw the exhibition advertised on the BigBusTours map. We’re glad we dropped in as this is a great way to spend some time in the city. It took us about 40 minutes to walk around and the displays were really interesting. Special mention to the staff who were always available, helpful and friendly. Thank!!

    My favourite non historical attraction
    For me this was one of the best places i visited in budapest that was not historical. I had so much time and we were lucky to be very few visitors inside and could take our tine with the pictures. Ill always recommend this place to anyone.

We found the museum as it poured with rain and we need to find an activity in the dry. It was fun and we took some cool photos and laughed but the entrance fee is far too high, considering a lot of activities in Budapest are not at all expensive. We were 2 adults and one teenager but I would have been less impressed to pay for a full family given the size of the museum and number of exhibits.

I was looking forward for this exhibition but I was kind of let down.
We booked our ticket weeks before the actual date and was excited but when we arrived I was shocked how PACKED the museum was. Adults and their running, screaming children.
You couldn’t really enjoy anything because you are looking at something and somebody either bumps into you or stands in front of you. There are some things that you can touch or play with but you can be sure that a kid will come and ruin it for you.
We left our coats at the beginning of the exhibition but the end of the museum is at a different place so you are forced to go out to the street and walk in the cold weather and run back to the beginning of the museum.
Actually the exhibition was probably all right and could have been enjoyable but I think a lot less people should be allowed to go into at once.

Dear Liak, Sorry you didn't enjoy the museum. Our goal is to provide a fun and educational experience for all our visitors, but it looks like we fell short of this goal during your visit. Our museum is pretty packed on weekends (including kids as well....), perhaps is more enjoyable during the slower hours. We also had a period when the warderobe was moved for some reason, but each time we told to our visitors what their options were. The museum was also open to visitors with coats during this time. Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful day.

We visited for an hour whilst waiting for the rain to pass. I’m sure this place would be fun but unfortunately during our visit it seemed there were far too many people in the museum which resulted in extremely long queues for photos. The place itself is cool and could be great if there weren’t so many people inside.

I wasn't expecting much as there are so few reviews but my husband insisted he wanted to visit. I smiled the whole way through! it was so much fun and all we wished were our three kids were there to enjoy it with us, The staff were so attentive and were ready to take pictures at each illusion which really made the experience that much more fun. We will definitely be back (with the children next time)
