Winter is upon us, even in LA, and that means the kids are home for the holidays! Whatever you celebrate, these few weeks are a great chance to spend quality family time with each other. But what to do? If you’re searching for family-friendly entertainment, look no further than the brand new Museum of Illusions!

Interactive illusions

Located on Hollywood Boulevard, the Museum of Illusions features stunning, mind-bending examples of paintings that play with your perception of reality. Here, you don’t just see the art – you become part of it! Climb a towering cliff face, take cover from a highway explosion worthy of Michael Bay, peer over city skylines, participate in a full-on food fight – or, if these aren’t your speed, you might prefer surfing a big blue wave or scratching a giant kitten’s belly. With over 30 artworks from various talented artists, all these scenes and more await you!

Photo-friendly fun

While visiting the museum, feel free to take as many pictures as you like – photography isn’t just allowed, it’s encouraged. The interactive, illusory paintings work best when seen again as 2D images, so snap (and send) away! Any of the illusions could make a great backdrop for fun family portraits, or for filling your photo albums (or phone storage space) with bright, unique images that will stand out in your photo collections.
