This is not a museum but sort of an amusement park. There are a lot of optical illusions and random funny stuff. Our favourite was the lowest floor medieval cathedral columns impression made with mirrors! It was super fun.

This visit extended my expectations. It is a very curious place full of visual games but if you think a moment you realize gives a science and physic lesson. I enjoyed "playing" with all things to discover and visual effects. Very close to other attractions...More
