Do you love to take Instagram worthy photos that wow your friends and attract more viewers? One block west of the Hollywood & Highland entertainment complex is the whimsical Museum of Illusions offering a variety of fun photo opportunities.
Visitors get to participate in over 30 imaginative murals painted by talented and creative artists. Go with friends and family to take eye-popping photos where you are in the exhibit. It’s your opportunity to be a street artist-
There are photos on the wall at each exhibit to guide you on where to stand to get the optimal photo producing believable illusions. Unzip a bag of M&M’s and capture a sweet treat –
Some of the murals illustrate current events that include a boxing match with President Trump. This comes with a set of boxing gloves as a prop so visitors can pretend to throw a punch at him.
Pick up a clear umbrella, similar to one a man is carrying in a mural and pose beside him. Another mural offers larger-than-life flowers.
Movie buffs can pose with some of Hollywood’s famous movie stars, including surfing a wave with JAWS and peeking at an amphibious creature similar to The Shape of Water.
I recommend purchasing a VIP ticket to skip the line (if there is one), and receive your own personal photographer. It’s $100 for two guests. We had Al lead us through the exhibit and tell us the optimal spots to stand, sit, and lie down to get the best photo. Not only did he take our photos, but afterwards edited them and emailed them to us. VIP’s also get a special keepsake gift at the end.
This family-friendly museum is the only one of it’s kind in Los Angeles. Crack open a piggy bank filled with Bitcoin-
Participate in three-dimensional artwork where participants can re-enact dangerous stunts similar in Hollywood movies-
and survive natural disasters including earthquakes and volcanos erupting –
Foodies will enjoy a few fun murals that include wrestling with an octopus in a take-out box, and stomping on a ketchup bottle to enhance a giant burger and getting into a tomato fight with a duo dressed in ketchup bottles.
