WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Voltaire once said that "illusion is the first of all pleasures." In that case, pleasure abounds at the new Museum of Illusions opening in Northwest D.C. this December. The museum will showcase 50 exhibits featuring holograms, optical illusions and immersive rooms.

Some of the notable attractions include the infinity well, Beuchet Chair illusion, and an Ames room where guests can grow and shrink from one side to the other. The museum also features a Smart Playroom where guests can play and compete in games, puzzles and other brain-teasers. 21 May 2022, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Stuttgart: A man and a woman have their picture taken with a smartphone at the Museum of Illusions.
