The Museum of Illusions is making plans to bring its unique exhibition with the hopes to delight Valley residents and visitors this fall.
The Museum of Illusions Scottsdale will sprout permanently alongside OdySea Aquarium and Butterfly Wonderland a part of the burgeoning Arizona Boardwalk, according to a press release.
The Scottsdale location marks the 35th brick-and-mortar Museum of Illusions to emerge across the globe, the release states.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the Museum of Illusions to Scottsdale, which is an ideal city for such an engaging and new museum concept,” said Stacy Stec, marketing manager at LOL Entertainment, which is the parent company of Museum of Illusions Scottsdale.

“This city has a buzzing scene and provides the perfect landscape for the expansion of the museum’s U.S. presence. We are confident that people of all ages will love seeing and experiencing the museum’s unique illusions, exhibits and immersive rooms.”
With more than 60 exhibits featuring holograms, stereograms and optical illusions, visitors will learn about vision, perception and the human brain, as well as experience firsthand the science of how the eyes can trick the mind, the release states.
Exhibits range from classics to the never-before seen. Guests will walk on walls in the “Rotated Room,” defy gravity in the “Tilted Room,” and appear to grow and shrink in the “Ames Room.”
Ms. Stec says there is more than meets the eye when it comes to overall experience coming to Scottsdale this fall.
“While our museum certainly is visually engaging and has those photo-worthy moments, it is about so much more,” Ms. Stec said. “We’ve carefully and thoughtfully designed this museum to provide an educational experience that will leave guests feeling inspired long after they leave. We can’t wait to challenge minds and provide a hands-on, immersive experience for all ages.”
