Museum of Illusions – level 1

07-01-2021 07:00

A new Museum of Illusions is in Cairo, Egypt. An illusion is something that is not real. People see it or feel it. They think that it is real. It is only a trick on their brain.

The museum is more than fun. Visitors can learn a lot of things there. They learn how their brains work. They understand illusions better. It is possible to explain every illusion. Everything is about science.

15 museums of illusion are in all world. The first museum opens in Croatia in 2015. It becomes very popular. People love illusions. The museum is good for children and for grandparents, too.

Difficult words: trick (something that makes us believe a thing that is not real or true), brain (a body part in our head that controls the body and makes us think), science (a subject such as chemistry, mathematics, or biology).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
