Are you fascinated by the fascinating world of illusions? If the answer is yes, you are in luck!
Museum Of Illusions Kuala Lumpur (MOIKL) opens its doors to the public today (June 22, 2022)! After a long two-year pandemic break, they have returned stronger with both classic and a few new installations.
Originally from Croatia, the Museum of Illusions is also present in 37 locations around the world, including New York, Paris, Istanbul, Dubai and many more. They are also the world’s fastest growing chain of private museums, FYI.
Here in Kuala Lumpur, there are around 50 exhibitions to visit in the museum, ranging from optical illusion exhibitions to thought-provoking rooms.
Activities that are actually worth trying
Some of the exhibits you must try are Vortex Tunnel, Infinity Room, Ames Room, Reversed Room, Color Room and Anti-Gravity Room.
The Vortex Tunnel is by far the best experience, but it will make you a little dizzy afterwards. It creates the illusion that the bridge below you is shaking as you are transported to another dimension. It varies depending on the people, but some of you will feel like you are traveling in time or space jumps (just do not vomit afterwards!).
The Infinity room is a wonderful room filled with mirrors and tiny little lights that change to beautiful colors. You will feel like you are in infinite space with infinite stars above you. Perfect for the aesthetic OOTD or cute couple image.
The Color space is nothing special, but if you want to feel like the main character in a music video, you can try this one. You will have different colored shades in this room. The photos or boomerang here can simply be covered for your next album.
The Ames rom is the classic room where you will seem like you are small on one side and you are huge on the other side. You should put your best acting here so that you do not look difficult while posing in front of the staff who help you take your pictures.
The Reverse room will require you to lie down on the ground for a cool I-hang-from-the-ceiling effect. This requires some stretching and a pose such as the “lateral leg lift” exercise. Good luck with that.
The Anti-gravity room works best if you stand at the entrance at a 45 degree angle, far away from the mirror at the end. You will look like you are tilting like the legendary Micheal Jackson in the mirror! Break some regular criminal dance moves while you’re at it.
For more great photo opportunities, try Kaleidoscope, Swap Noses (you get a good laugh with this) and Infinity Well.
Test your brain power with puzzles
If you like riddles, this is also a great place for you. Not only do they test your eyes here, but they also test your brain with edutainment tasks.
Try your best to free the desired block from the box (as in the Unblock game) and make pyramids or balls out of wooden puzzle pieces. It’s going to take you a long time, but when you complete the puzzle, you’ll walk out of the museum and feel like Einstein!
Usually most people will spend an hour and a half or two hours here if you try out all the exhibits.
Take lots of pictures and enjoy your time there!
