Inside Dubai's epic Museum of Illusions in Al Seef

The famous museum full of mischief and trickery is open for all to enter

We like to think we could never be duped by any sort of smoke and mirrors. That is until we entered Dubai’s Museum of Illusions.

The Time Out Dubai team checked out the weird and wonderful exhibit, and discovered some pretty nifty puzzles and enough optical illusions to make our heads turn upside down (not literally).

Setting up shop over in Al Seef in Bur Dubai, the museum houses 80 different exhibits to boggle the mind. And they're pretty impressive.


Whether you're in a Vortex Tunnel or growing/shrinking in the Ames room there's plenty to wow you. And the array of cheeky puzzles that had us scratching our heads.

The famous museum full of mischief and trickery is open for all to enter, and it’s only Dhs80 to get a full day’s worth of being fooled.

And this week we have quite the giveaway – an incredible two night stay at Atlantis The Palm with dinner for two at the newly opened Hakkasan.

All you have to do to enter is subscribe to the Time Out Dubai YouTube channel before Tuesday November 20, when we'll pick the winner. Good luck!

Every week we get out and about into this awesome city and find out the best stuff there is going on.

Whether it’s jumping out of planes, jumping off of mountains, swimming with sharks, failing to surf, taking on the city’s craziest food challenges, getting a kiss from a seal, falling out of supercars or anything in between, if it’s happening in your city, the Time Out Dubai crew are on it.
