The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.

On a rainy day in Athens this is a good way to spend 50mins. It is a little steep at 24 euro for 2 adults. However the staff were friendly and helped us to get the best pictures. It’s small but wasn’t busy and better than been out in rain.

This small museum is very entertaining, and staff are friendly and helpful. They offer to take photos (no extra cost) and would advise you where to stand and in what position for the best photo. The ticket price was quite steep at €12 per adult and €9 per child as your time in there is limited to 50 minutes. There are some very good illusions though like a corridor that seems to be tilting this way and that way (it's not) or the infinity room where there are 100s of you.

The most attractive museum in Greece. Good prices if you have enough money,and kind staff. I liked the below:

1) The souvenir shop
2) The room with the mirrors, where you see yourself mirrorly, like 20 times
3) The room with automatic gravity, where you have to walk up, and see the automatical gravity trying to take you down.
4) The exhibit where on one side you see a cube, and on the other you see a pyramid
5) The exhibit in the restrooms , in which when you press the big red button, the restroom plays loud music colorfully.

Also, the museum is on two floors.

Visited Athens during one of the coldest weeks. We were looking for an activity that was indoors. So this was a last minute booking. Absolutely loved it!! I took my mother and my 30 something year old sister and we enjoyed the opportunity to re discover our inner child curiosity and fun!! I love that the museum is open quite late. We booked on the same day at 5pm and got a 7:30pm slot. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. There was always member of staff available to help you with the different activities. They also took some really lovely pics!! There were enough areas to keep you interested without it being overcrowded. A brilliant indoor via Trip Advisor Attractions. An attraction for all ages

kind of disappointed of the experience. Not many rooms. Overcrowded with children which made it overwhelming. A bit too pricy for what was offered. It was 11€ normal ticket and 8€.

This is really a fun museum and well worth looking for because it's not easy to find. The illusions were often delightful and there are helpful guides to help you to get the most out of this "fun house". Go!

This was a fun and random find as we were walking through Athens. A couple of floors of some very well executed illusions and one of the best twisting tunnels I've walked through.

That said some of them were a little worn but that's to be expected and didn't detract from the overall experience.

Staff were helpful and present throughout - if you're passing it's worth dropping in.
