Limburg has gained another museum since Saturday: the Museum of Illusions opens its doors in Maastricht.
The museum is focused on optical illusions. That is to say: what you see with your eyes, your brain interprets differently.
The museum will be located in Mosae Forum and will look into neuroscience in an educational way, the museum states. The Maastricht collection consists of seventy ‘museum pieces’.
Museum of Illusions has existed as a concept since 2015 and is said to be the fastest growing museum chain in the world. The first museum opened in Zagreb, followed by cities like Rome, Dubai, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Toronto. And now also Maastricht.
According to the museum, the provincial capital was chosen because of courses such as Maastricht University and the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design.
Museum of Illusions is the second museum in Limburg that focuses specifically on optical illusions: optical illusions have been on display at Mind Mystery in Horst since the autumn of 2018.
