Prague: Illusion Art Museum Ticket

1. Prague: Illusion Art Museum Ticket

Explore the Illusion Art Museum Prague, full of illusory art and trick art, which will appeal to all ages. Enjoy unexpected optical effects that will play with your imagination and thus expand your visual perception of the world with new perspectives. Discover illusory art techniques across the history of art, but also in current artistic trends. Experience a reverse perspective in the works of the prominent British artist Patrick Hughes. Be amazed by 3D anamorphic installations from various objects by Patrik Prošek or unique metallurgical paintings painted with fire by Ladislav Vlna. See optical reliefs of Ivana Štenclová and the distorted 3D paintings by Zdeněk Daňek and Jan Jírovec. Admire changing lenticular images of David Strauzz, or the stereoscopic photographs of the travelers Zikmund and Hanzelka. Since most of the works are interactive, you will be able to engage with them in your own way. Be sure to take plenty of photos, where you will be the main hero of stories in illusory processing. Right in front of your eyes, 2D images will turn into 3D spaces, and on the contrary, sculptures will turn into paintings. You can try light painting yourself, learn about the behind-the-scenes of the individual works in the mini cinema and become actors in augmented reality thanks to a new application that animates the works in real-time. The exhibition is not only about entertainment, but also about education. Learn how artistic illusory techniques are used in a historical context, and some works are directly related to important personalities and events in Czech history.

What people are saying about Prague

This is a tour that you should definitely do when you are in Prague. It is an educational trip that you can learn about all the cruelty that was done in concentration camps, the horrible daily life of the imprisoned people and all that propaganda that was used to persuade people that concentration camps were places where they would start a new life. We were extremely happy when we saw that Ms Vera would be our tour guide for the second time during our vacation in Prague! Even though our group was bilingual, Ms Vera did such smooth transitions from English to Spanish and vice versa, that everyone was pleased.

Such a highly recommended tour to do! Our excellent tour guide, Ms Hannah, took us to different places where we were able to compare photos to today’s spots, learn about the history of Prague during WWII and we even had access to a private collection of items from those years! Our tour ended at the church where the paratroopers had found refuge and we could almost “live” the whole experience, since we even visited the catacomb. Honestly, if Ms Hannah will be your tour guide, you will be soooooooo lucky! Loved it!
