Cosmos Museum is a newly opened interactive museum in Warsaw. It is becoming more and more popular thanks to the “magic” photos that can be taken there.
The Cosmos Museum addresses all stereotypes about museums. You won’t find exhibits behind the glass or boring guide stories. You will take a lot of photos of the space, because it was created mainly for this purpose. Although it opened recently, it has already gained many fans.
A place filled with illusion
Cosmos Museum is a place full of illusion. The tour begins with a vortex tunnel, which is one of the three most interesting installations that the museum serves. In this tunnel you may get a little “dizzy,” because the lights are spinning in such a way that we feel as if we are losing balance.
An ideal place for the instagram star in your life.
One of the must see areas is the “Infinity Mirror Room”. It is a room in which the walls are covered with mirrors, which gives the impression of endless space. In addition, the room is filled with thousands of lights that resemble space. The room feels like millions of stars surround us. It is in this room that visitors take the most beautiful photos. Changing lights and atmospheric music mean that you can hang a little bit. There is a reason that a sign hangs before entering, asking you not to spend more than three minutes inside.
A mirror attraction
The second – and last – place that arouses curiosity is the maze of mirrors. You have to be very careful when taking the next steps, because you can accidentally hit a mirror.
It is quite interesting that the owners gave the place such a name. It cannot be ruled out that this was a deliberate marketing operation, because “Cosmos Museum” is more welcoming than more than “Museum of Illusions”. Don’t expect any advance lessons in the science of space and the Cosmos.
For the curious, in Cosmos Museum you can visit the so-called ‘The Ames Room’, a type of room in which, thanks to the specific arrangement of the walls, creates an optical illusion. After two people enter, one appears tall and the other appears tiny. There is also a trick with a disappearing man on a chair, lots of mirrors that thicken, slim down and lengthen a corridor with hanging red noodles, a room where the desk is hung on a side wall, and you stand as if standing on the floor levitated or a pink room full of balloons.
