Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to have the time to check out a popular attraction new to the Toronto scene. You may have heard about it or seen certain exhibits from this new venue on social media. This place is dubbed as “Fitness Center for the brain”, is none other than the Museum of Illusions.
Check out the vlog right above to take a look inside the Museum from the moment you enter to the time you exit. Please make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel, like and share that video as I will greatly appreciate your support! Please see below more detailed information and pictures.
The specific location is 132 Front Street East in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
If you’re in the area, try to make a day out of it as it’s located in the beautiful St. Lawrence Market (the market is closed certain days but still a nice area to walk around). However, it does look like there are different locations in the States (eg. Kansas City).
Besides the cool exhibits to take pictures with/in/of (which they highly encourage), it’s an innovative way to challenge your brain’s capabilities. Yes, it can be dizzy and mind-blogging but the exhibits make you focus on what’s really there and what is an illusion. Hence, why I wore my Patrick Ewing “33 Focus Hi”. Of course, some will be more straining than others. Therefore, I do suggest not to eat heavy prior to attending as you may never know how much you can handle, especially when it comes to The Vortex Tunnel.
Besides the exhibits, there are also cool souvenirs that you can purchase, from games to stationary and more.
As listed on the website, there are different prices. For adults, it is $23.50 + HST, children admission is $19.50+HST, and for the Family (2 adults and 2 children up to the age of 16) it is $78.50+HST. Although our tickets were promoted through American Express, you can still buy tickets here. As seen on the video, certain days do get sold out so plan in advance!
All in all, it was cool to check out. I’m not going to lie I think I felt dizzy after a while but I am super happy that I actually got to check it out. I don’t think this is a pop-up so you may have some time to check this out but I would recommend going sooner than later. I also thought the pricing was fair for admission but I am curious to see if they will do more exhibits.
There are much more exhibits I didn’t feature that were present, such as the holograms. However, you can find out more about the other exhibits and about the museum itself by visiting their website here.
Are there any other Toronto spots you want me to check out and review?
