A new museum, first of its kind in Russia opened in one of the Old Arbat’s lanes.Photographing here is not forbidden, but is an integral part of the exposure consideration. Visitors of the museum are not just the audience, but full participants of the paintings.
The best artists and property masters from different cities of the country were working to create a new collection for exhibition space. The main purpose of this museum is providing scenery for fun photos.
Optical illusion is possible because of the intricacies of visual perception and errors in it. You estimate distance, size, angle or color incorrectly. As a result, moving objects appear at still pictures, flat pictures suddenly become three-dimensional, and so on. On the floor, you will see painted signs, showing the best place to take a picture.
Thus, you can pretend that you are playing table tennis or pulling out a tooth. You may find yourself in a barbershop or under the umbrella. You can feel like a tightrope walker or dine with Disney characters; sit down and discuss research papers with Vladimir Lenin or try to win the judo with Vladimir Putin.
Museum is located at Maliy Nikolopeskovskiy Lane, 4 (Smolenskaya or Arbatskaya metro stations). It is open daily from 11:30 to 23:30. Ticket price is 350 rubles.
