Attractions in Kuala Lumpur: Museum of Illusions

Planning a holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia? Kuala Lumpur is a heaven to tourists and adventurers alike. Apart from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers that’s located in the city area, there are plenty of family friendly attractions that you might want to drop by when you are touring around in Kuala Lumpur. Among the must visit and not to be missed are the National Mosque, National Museum, KL Bird Park, KL Gallery, Kuala Lumpur Islamic Museum, the Planetarium, Lake Garden and many more.


But if you’re into taking instagram-worthy photos and up for some crazy fun, you might want to consider visiting the Museum of Illusions.


Located in the heart of the Bukit Bintang, which is the Golden Triangle area of Kuala Lumpur, the Museum of Illusions is nestled at Ansa Hotel. The place is just about 5 minutes walk away from Bukit Bintang MRT station and in the vicinity of major shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur like Pavillion, Lot 10 and Sungei Wang.

The museum offers exhibits that are made of trick art illusions that will definitely make your mind work overtime. I’ve had the opportunity to visit the newly opened museum a couple of days ago with my friends and here’s sharing some pictures taken with you:


A picture at one of the exhibit in the museum, the Vortex tunnel. This is one of my favourite picture, but taking a picture here can be quite tricky as the vortex actually spins and can be quite disorienting if you stay in the tunnel too long.


A picture underneath a starry sky. Beautiful isn’t it? The picture were not taken under any night sky, though. It’s just an illusion.


A picture of yours truly with colourful shadows.


There are plenty of mirror illusions in this museum, but this is among the more unique one.

This picture certainly reminds me of a scene in Alice in Wonderland.

There are plenty of exhibit in this place that plays with angle. Be sure to take some creative and interesting pose.

Walking on the ceiling is also a must in this museum. Don’t worry. It’s completely safe. You won’t end up breaking your neck attempting to be a Spidey.

Ever wonder how you’d look like being served on a plate?


The Kaleidoscope is also another interesting exhibit that allows you to take a pretty picture like this.


Apart from mind-boggling exhibit that does tricks to the eyes, the exhibits also includes some challenging puzzles.


You may get your hands on the puzzles and try solving them, but solving puzzles is not easy. I gave up on most after my third try.


The museum also features souvenir shop selling puzzle games, so if this is your kind of thing, just grab one or two to challenge your mind with.

The museum is children friendly and definitely worth a visit and I recommend you to spend more than 1 hour exploring the exhibit here. The staffs here are helpful and very friendly. Should you need assistance on taking pictures, just hand over your smartphones or cameras and they will be pleased to help you take some photos.
