Museum of Senses: Optical Illusions
Museum of senses: illusions that affect your senses, nothing is what it seems to be. This is the world topsy-turvy. Your responses to the exhibits are not the usual ones you experience in daily life. You will be amazed at yourself. The Museum of Senses consists of about fifty different ‘experiences’ that challenge your senses. The whole exhibition is interactive and perfect for selfies and other photos. The museum helps you by indication from which angle or what spot to take the best photos. This museum is suitable for everyone no matter their age. At the end of the exhibition, you will find tables with several mind-boggling games to test your dexterity.
Museum of Senses: Your Senses Topsy-turvy
The Museum of Senses takes you on a journey of discovery. To begin with you need to find your way through the mirror maze. Then you are plunged in complete darkness and you have to find your way there too. Next is how to survive the jungle where water from a tap is flowing up. Mind blowing! When you come back to your senses, it is time to experience and understand more optical illusions.

Nothing Is What It Seems To Be
You participate in different games that effect different senses. Be a fakir and rest on a bed of nails. Do you feel relaxed or are you afraid? Continue your sensory trip and put your senses to the test. Enter one of the ‘secret’ rooms. The floor seems to be sloping and you are far bigger than the persons in the other corner of the room who seem to have shrunk. Walk on the ceiling in the inverted room and see everything from a different perspective. A hat on a platter is another visual illusion. The rotating tunnel is not for the faint-hearted but perfect for a complete feeling of dizziness.
