The Museum of Illusions Scottsdale is slated to open on Saturday, March 11.
The Museum of Illusions Scottsdale will be permanently situated alongside OdySea Aquarium and Butterfly Wonderland in the Arizona Boardwalk, the area’s premier entertainment destination, according to a press release.
The Scottsdale location is the latest installment of the Museum of Illusions’ global presence, with more than 35 locations worldwide, 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 of LOL Entertainment, in a prepared statement. “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.”
Representatives of the of brand report the Museum of Illusions offers visual and educational displays designed to tease the senses and bring out the playful side in guests of all ages.
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. 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.
“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.”
