The Museum of Illusion in Lyon, plunges the visitor into a whirling universe!

It is necessary to be daring to penetrate the three-dimensional universe created by the Vortex Tunnel, because under its stable and flat appearance, this illusion slows down the movement and makes lose the reference marks.
The Infinity Room puts the visitor to the test, as he must try to resist the laws of gravity, while the Hall of Mirrors distorts the reflections, amusing but disturbing...
The room of enigmas and its puzzles, will challenge the most lively brains for a playful moment.

Perception and little grey cells are at the feast because the Museum of Illusion is also a space where learning is the main part. Each animation is accompanied by a rational and scientific explanation that sheds light on the functioning of the brain, and reminds us that what is perceived of the world is often only an illusion!
