Reviews

S. TF.

Very good attraction for children and adults alike. It teaches an important life lesson that you can’t always rely on your brain. The tour lasts about 1 hour, with lots of little workshops. Perfect for a school trip or family outing.

Assia S.

Superb course full of illusions and optical effects. I was expecting it to be just for the little ones, but it wasn't. We had as much fun as they did. I highly recommend!

Lionel S.

I went with my goddaughter, who loved it. She wanted to do the course 3 times and then some! In the end, we had to pull her away.

Alexia C.

A must-see in Brussels Top-notch museum and very attentive staff I recommend it, we had a great time!

Philippe P.

It can't be told, it has to be experienced. A very fine exhibition that makes us realize how fragile human perception can be. Is everything I see real, or is everything I see my perception?
