Museum of Illusions – level 2

07-01-2021 07:00

A new Museum of Illusions opened in Cairo, Egypt.

An illusion is when our senses trick our brain, and we see or feel something that is not really happening. In the museum, people see, for example, holograms or special pictures, and they visit a room called the Infinity Room. The manager of the museum said that people visit the place for more than fun. They could learn a lot of interesting things about their mind, vision, and science, too.

There are 15 similar museums around the world. The first museum opened in Croatia in 2015 and it quickly became very popular. It is a very successful idea and people of all ages love it.

Difficult words: sense (when people can see, smell, hear, taste, and touch), hologram (an image that is not real, but a special technology makes it look real), infinity (when something has no end).

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