A new museum that is letting its patrons channel their inner Houdini  officially opened its doors in Toronto earlier this week.

This is the 13th installation of the Museum of Illusions after it was founded in Croatia three years ago.

Organizers of the biggest permanent tourist attraction to hit the city since Ripley’s Aquarium five years ago say the exhibits are definitely “brain bashers,” as guests try to figure out why their eyes are seeing things their minds cannot fully understand.

From the vortex tunnel that makes visitors feel like they are swaying on a bridge when its actually the wall moving to the infinity room where dozens of mirrors give the illusion the room goes on forever, the museum is filled with nearly 80 brain teasers like these.

Toronto’s Museum of Illusions is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and is located at 132 Front St. East near the St. Lawrence Market.
