A place one must visit with friends.. Every illusion was well described and you will have genuine guidelines.. Staffs are really helpful and honest.. If you are in Doha don't miss out.. Wanderful place..

Well worth the visit!
Jan 2021 • Friends
Can take an array of pictures with optical illusions as effects. Great way to spend the afternoon with your friends as can have plenty of fun doing animations to the illustrations.

Place is air conditioned so can get away from the heat outside. Price is slightly expensive but it’s worth the experience.

I can’t remember her name but one of the staff members came around all the sections and showed us how things worked, where to stand to make the illusion work etc

She took alot of pictures for us, she was very friendly. That was great customer service!

Nice but overpriced for the value
Dec 2020 • Friends
Nice place we enjoyed but I guess it’s a bit overpriced for the things inside to view. Wasn’t impressed much. Some of the tricks are Insta worthy. Nice for a one time visit but not more.

Overrated
Oct 2020
Such an overrated place, not worth the 65 DHS entry fee for a 10 min walk across areas. They 'attempted' to put up some Halloween decorations, but all exhibits looked worn out, unimaginative and nothing special. Doesn't compare at all to its counterparts across the world.

Good but not for everyone
Nov 2020 • Family
We went to the museum as part of our visit to Al Seef (which is worth visiting), the museum charges a fee of 65 per adult. And there’s a fee for children aged 5 and above. It’s a small museum (family oriented). It’s fun and interactive. The staff there are very helpful in helping you understand the different games of illusion.

I personally left with a headache and some dizziness. So if you can’t handle movements, colors and illusions, I wouldn’t recommend it. It is better to visit the place with someone as if you go alone you may not be able to try the different games or illusions.

Not recommended for children under 6.
