Guests are encouraged to dress in their “Best Costume” and will receive free candy throughout the Museum, while supplies last. Many of the Museum’s iconic rooms, including the Ames Room, Color Room, Reversed Room, and Head on the Plate exhibit, will be reimagined with Halloween theming.
When: Every Wednesday, October 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th from 5-8 p.m.
Cost: Standard Admission Ticket Cost
If you can’t make it on any Wednesday evening but still want amazing snaps, grab your smartphones, friends, and family for enviable shots at the regular admission rate, or make reservations for The Museum of Illusions + The Wheel at ICON Park® combo ticket, any day of the week! The price is $39.95 plus tax for adults and $34.95 for children ages three and older, saving the buyer $17 if purchased separately.
Opened earlier this year and located in the Orlando Entertainment District, Museum of Illusions offers more than 50 intriguing exhibits and more eye-fooling fun under one roof than any other destination in Central Florida. Guests can take enviable, share-worthy snaps they won’t find anywhere else.
Museum of Illusions’ collection of interactive, immersive, and distinctly incomprehensible exhibits are based on math, science, and psychology. Visitors are prompted to learn about the tricks of perception and how the human brain works as they move through each exhibit. Imaginations can run free in the vast expanse of the Infinity Room, defy the laws of gravity in the Reverse Room, and shrink to miniature size in the Ames Room — all while capturing a coveted, baffling photo.
In addition to its core collection, the museum’s climate-controlled building, 1-2-hour experience, free parking at ICON Park®, and adjacency to food and beverage outlets, make it a winning entertainment option for inquisitive minds of all ages. Guests can purchase puzzles, mind-tricking games, and other souvenirs in the museum’s Smart (Gift) Shop or online at moigiftshop.com.
Orlando’s newest museum has a variety of COVID-19 safety measures in place, including face masks while inside the museum, limited capacity, designated time slots, one-way paths through exhibits, ongoing cleaning by staff, and hand sanitizers, and wipes for guests.
