Museum of Illusions opens in Downtown Cleveland

The Museum of Illusions, the largest and fastest growing chain of private museums in the world, recently opened its newest location in Cleveland.  The Museum of Illusions is a pioneer in the concept of edutainment, or educational entertainment, and its exhibits are renowned for playing tricks on the mind and showing visitors the amazing science behind illusions.

The Cleveland location will be housed at 186 Euclid Avenue in the May building adjacent to Public Square in the heart of downtown.  Its 9,200 square feet of exhibit space offers a unique and unconventional spin on art, education and entertainment through interactive and immersive experiences. Highlights include a Cleveland-themed “reversed room” where visitors will seemingly levitate upside down on a basketball court and “building illusion” where they can appear as if they are hanging from a Cleveland building.  Other popular and visually striking exhibits include the walk-in kaleidoscope, vortex tunnel and Infinity room.

All Museum of Illusions locations take great care to be both entertaining, educational and accommodating to people of all ages. Exhibits are intentionally interactive and are designed to be touched, experienced and photographed, creating memorable moments and encouraging social sharing. The Museum is ADA accessible and welcomes families with strollers.

Whether you're planning a date night, a family outing, or a corporate event, the Museum of Illusions offers an experience unlike any other in Cleveland.

Tickets prices start from $20. While walk-ins are welcome, visitors are encouraged to reserve their tickets online at and follow the museum at @moi_cleveland on social media for more information.
