About museum

The Museum of Tricks and Illusions was conceived as an interactive exhibition for the whole family. The basis of the collection is interactive exhibits created by a professional illusionist from Belarus, Vasilii Trunov. It was he who found this fascinating format. The peculiarity of the museum is that visitors not only get acquainted with the wonderful world of illusion art and its history, but can themselves become participants in such illusions as “Disappearance of the body”, “Levitation”, and “Flight on a broomstick”.

Since September 2018, the exhibition has been successfully held throughout the cities of the Moscow region. And since June 2019, it has been operating in the Sokolniki Exhibition and Convention Center.

The museum is in its infancy. The collection is gradually being replenished with new exhibits and educational materials. Relations with the professional community of illusionists are expanding.

The museum’s collection contains more than 25 exhibits, each of which is a trick or an optical puzzle that our visitors have to solve.
