Paradox Museum, 90 experiences of trompe l'oeil, optical illusions and sensory upheaval await you in Paris. You'll love being fooled and capturing surrealist images. Book your Family Pack for a visit between 12.15 and 1.30 p.m. and pay only €75 instead of €88.

The Paradox Museum is coming to Paris, and it's not doing things by halves, as it's the largest museum of mental trickery to open anywhere in the world. Having already conquered Miami, Oslo and Stockholm, this temple to illusion has now set up shop just a stone's throw from the Opéra, in 1700 m2 of space on 3 levels.

In Paris, we're already familiar with the Musée de l'illusion and its multi-sensory trail, Sensas, theimmersive and sensoryexperience, and Science Experiences and its immersive trail. Now, a newcomer has joined the ranks of surprising museums with amusing experiences.

Head for the Grands Boulevards in Paris's 9th arrondissement, near FlyView and La tête dans les nuages, to discover this new spot, open since May 18, 2023. This is the European flagship for the concept, which has no intention of stopping there, as a dozen other addresses are already in the pipeline for this year alone.

The Paradox Museum in Paris offers no fewer than 90 experiences for families and friends, pushing back the limits of reality. More than a dozen of these unusual experiences are exclusive to the site! This means you can experience installations designed and created exclusively for the French capital, and which don't exist in Oslo or Barcelona.

These 90 experiences will evolve over time, and other illusions and deceptions will be added in the future, to our delight. In the meantime, let's discover some of these paradoxical experiences.
