Do you see what you see? Taste what you smell? Hear what you see? Your senses and your brain often work together well, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Mistakes like these are exactly what illusionists like to work with and what scientists try to understand the workings of. In the Museon, the two worlds of magic and science touch. Let your senses be bewitched and your brain tricked in Illusions: magic or science?

Illusions - magic or science is open from 2 mei 2016 - 5 march 2017.

What is light? How does it influence our daily life? How do we share it? Luminipolis explores the nature of light with a twist. Based on the concept of escape games, it invites visitors, as part of a team or as individual, to learn more about the science of light by solving riddles and collecting clues. But time is off the essence in this experience and visitors only have a set amount of time in order to collect the right answers and unlock the exit door of Luminopolis.
