The way our brain works is extremely complex, we don’t merely perceive reality as we see or feel it. What our brain does is gather information from each of our senses, combining and enhancing some details while ignoring others, all the while filling in any gaps using its pre-existing knowledge of the world.

Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Ansa Hotel at Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur for Asia’s first Museum of Illusions. It is located on the 1st and 2nd floor of the newly expanded zone of Ansa Hotel. Kuala Lumpur is slated to be the 7th Museum of Illusions since the maiden attraction originated in the land of famous international inventor Nikola Tesla, in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015. Another 7 museums are scheduled to open before the end of 2018.

You can expect to be tantalized with a visual and sensory experience that transcends generations at Museum of Illusions. With over 70 exhibits, the Museum of Illusions has the largest collection of holograms, stereograms, and optical illusions across Asia. Each of the exhibits has been designed to not only thrill and beguile visitors, but to provide a unique opportunity from which to learn just how easily a person’s mind can be tricked.

Illusions vary from a gravity-defying slanted room to visual illusions where the person shrinks or grows before their very eyes. You can engulf yourself in a dark and disorienting vortex or sit at a table with multiple versions of yourself while playing a game or two.

One of the museums first patrons, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Vincent Tan, was on hand to demonstrate the museums highly interactive character, enthusiastically ‘crawling on the ceiling’ equivalent to the famous Marvel superhero, Spiderman.

“We’re very lucky to have been chosen as the first destination in Asia. With museums in Europe and the Middle East already opened and blue-ribbon destinations like New York, Berlin, Dubai and Toronto expected in coming months, Kuala Lumpur is excited to be first on the map in this part of the world,” said Museum Director Azizul Aznan.

The Museum of Illusions showcases entertaining and mind-bending illusions, each of which teaches about vision, perception, the human brain, and science, allowing visitors to understand why their eyes may see things that the brain does not understand.

Unlike most museums, visitors are allowed to make a bit of noise and banter, particularly laughing and bewildered exclamations. “We don’t want visitors to be shy about their emotions, we want them to fully engage and interact with the exhibits. We want them to let their imagination run wild and share their experiences with friends and family as they navigate the perplexing, maze-like museum,” said Azizul.
