Being the adventure seeker than I am, I like to go out and see new places . I had been told by friends of this Museum called the Museum of Illusions. What intrigued me was the amount of art out inside this museum. It was open from Jan until next week so I figured, why not check this out?


When comes down to how much you have to pay to get in this museum, it’s a little on the pricey side. Tickets are around $25.  However when it comes down to saving money on a ticket, you can never go wrong with showing your school ID as you get $5 off your ticket. Not so bad as before. Instead of getting a ticket, you get a stamp on your hand.

Wait Time: I went on a Saturday at 5pm expecting to have around a 30- 70 minute wait time. However I didn’t get into the entrance up until 7:10pm. So if you’re trying to avoid a line, please come on a weekday as there isn’t a lot of tourism going on around the area.

Experience: When it came down to experiencing the museum, I must admit ,it looked so interesting.  So instead of writing it all down, I’d figure why not have the pictures of some of these interesting paintings each one with its own name.

1. We have the “oops . I sprayed ketchupp on you ” with a slice of humor on the side.


2.   Followed by the ” Hey, why do you look taller than me?”

with an inch of the galaxy.



3. Followed by “playing games while a boat is sinking”






4. Last but not least, what I like to call “Confronting Current President ”

I took around 159 pictures, showing that to come here you need some storage space to preserve these photos .  Another thing to add is that there aren’t people there to take your picture. What I ended up doing was having to ask other visitors to take my pictures as I offered to take theirs. I ended up being finished with the two rooms at around 8:07 pm.

Final Rating:👍🏽 👍🏽 👍🏽

This museum is great for photo shoots as they can spice up your Instagram feed along with being able to say that jack would’ve survived the titanic.  However I feel like the amount of time and money I paid into this museum wasn’t really equivalent to the amount of time I spent inside the actual museum. Personally, I believe that this museum is a good spot to create memories, but that there are other museums in LA that not only are permanent but can also  give you the same feel without even paying a dime.

If anyone is still interesting in going, the last day to go is on Monday, Mar 5, 2018.
