Interesting conceptual corners around the museum especially for kids who are 5 years and above. You must take your camera or phone camera when you visit because it’s not only about what you see but also what the lens of the camera see as well and that is the “illusion”. Friendly helpful staff and we were assisted by CLAIRE who is super nice with the kids. She has all the patience needed to handle them and to make them love the place. She is also a quick learner of Arabic. All in all the museum is a nice small place to experience with your children and enjoy the illusion.

We went to the museum of Illusions last evening and while all the activities were interesting and fun , its too limited for the price one pays. It can definitely be extended to include so much more. The staff were very helpful and friendly esp Ms.Alita who helped us with all the illusions and helped us take nice pictures.

During our trip to Oman, we were very happy when we saw there’s a MOI in Muscat. Since we’re from Croatia where MOI was founded we had big expectations, because one in Zagreb is super cool place to spend two hours for fun and to learn something.
Unfortunately, I have to say ticket price for MOI Muscat is too high for what you get. Hope sometime in the future your offer in Muscat will be similar to one in Zagreb, Croatia.
Ms Alita, museum staff, was kind, and for those who are visiting MOI for the first time, she will be very helpful.

We had a great time at the museum of illusions MGM. Although on a weekend and the place was full we could enjoy and roam freely. Alita was of great help. Will definitely recommend it. Some illusions are mind blowing.
