The Museum of Illusions in Dallas may make you question reality

Dallas' latest museum is leaving guests scratching their heads.

Dallas has museums for science. It has museums about history and education. It even has museums focused on candy.

But step inside the city's newest museum, and you won’t believe your own eyes.

The Museum of Illusions, now open in the West End, is chock full of more than 50 immersive exhibits that mess with people's senses, perception and logic.

"We call it edutainment,” said owner Subhi Gharbieh. “It's an edutainment experience where it's part educational, part entertainment."

One particular room will make guests look small in one corner, but giant in another. There’s a tunnel that will mess with guests’ ability to stand upright.

Around every corner is an Instagram-worthy picture. A popular exhibit allows visitors to take pictures where it appears they’re standing on the ceiling or even the wall.

Among the larger exhibits, there are smaller optical illusions at every turn.

The museum even plans to have a magician perform from time to time.

"One of the things that makes the Museum of Illusions unique is that it's an experience for all ages," Gharbieh said.

The Museum of Illusions, located on Ross Avenue, is open every day except Christmas from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
