How does grabbing a ceramic plate and throwing it as hard as you can at a wall sound? Let your anger out with this symbolic saucer smashing. Grab some plates, write or draw whatever’s grinding your gears on them, then let them fly. There’s a bullseye on the wall, but this isn’t about accuracy, this is about the cathartic release of breaking stuff.

  • Decorate a plate with drawings and writing and then smash it into smithereens in the Smash It room
  • Escape the jaws of a giant shark, ride a magic carpet next to the Golden Gate Bridge, and more amazing illusions
  • Add something fun and new to your Instagram with over 40 amazing illusions on display

There are more than 40 3D illusions inspired by art, movies, cartoons, current events, and more inside the Museum of 3D Illusions.

Get your camera at the ready, because soon you'll be flying on a magic carpet next to the Golden Gate Bridge, walking on the edge of a mountain, and even surviving the top of a skyscraper.

Whether you're visiting with family or friends, you're guaranteed to feel like a kid again with mind-bending images created by some of the world's best artists. You can even create your own piece of art on a plate, then send it flying towards a target in the Smash It Room!

At the Museum of 3D Illusions, flash photography isn't just allowed, it’s encouraged.

Show your smartphone ticket to the cashier at the front desk.
