Museum of Illusions


Enter the fascinating world of illusion which will trick your confidence in senses, but amaze you by doing it; the world that will confuse you completely, but also educate you… Visit us and you will be thrilled because nothing is what it seems, especially not in the Museum of Illusions!

We are operating at limited capacity of 25% as mandated by NY STATE.  Expect possible socially distanced queue to enter.

We have installed MERV-13 filters in our Air Conditioning system, along with UV Lights inside them, the best of both technologies that help eliminate Covid-19.  We added at least 12 hand sanitizing stations around our premises for visitors. 
We hired additional maintenance to disinfect our Musuem around the clock.  All our staff at all times wear face coverings or masks, along with gloves and are required to constantly disinfect their hands.   All staff is checked for Covid-19 symptoms every day. If someone is not well, they are sent home.

You will need to wear a face covering or mask to enter and keep it on at all times as its mandated by NY STATE.  Your temperature will be checked.  If you have a fever, you will be denied entry.  If you don’t feel well, please arrange another day to visit, your tickets will be valid.  You will need to disinfect your hands upon entry at our sanitizing station by the entrance. You will need to socially distance 6 feet from others. 

Essential workers that kept things running during lockdown, we thank them by offering them 10% discount on tickets and all merchandise in our Musuem shop.  If this applies to you, please enter ESSENTIAL at checkout to receive this discount.
