After expanding into America with the opening of a museum in New York late last year, the Museum of Illusions opened on the waterfront area The Bund in central Shanghai this week.
The Shanghai museum is the 16th Museum of Illusions and the 14th opened internationally. It is also the first one in China. The museum opened three months after an agreement was signed between the Museum of Illusions and their Chinese partner, long-time promoters of Croatian-Chinese trade, Caija Yua. The agreement was signed at the 16+1 Summit in Dubrovnik in April.
The Museum of Illusions was first opened in Zagreb in 2015 by Roko Živković and Tomislav Pamuković and since has opened in Zadar, Ljubljana, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Athens, Berlin, Vienna and New York.
More than 70 different amazing exhibits, scores of puzzles and illusions have made the museum a popular tourist attraction in the Croatian capital since it opened, earning it a TripAdvisor 2017 Certificate of Excellence.
