Museum of Reality
One of the top attractions in Zagreb, The Museum of Illusions teamed up with UNICEF to create a ‘Museum of Reality’, offering visitors a unique experience.
Museum of Reality, the first of its kind in the world, will opened its doors on 14th December 2015 at the Museum of Illusions in Zagreb. During the two days of the exhibition, visitors were presented with never-before-seen exhibits, offering a completely opposite experience to the world of illusions.
This interactive experience offereed a different perspective of the world we live in and inspired breaking down barriers of prejudice, leaving no one indifferent. The Museum of Reality was part of UNICEF’s marking of its 69th birthday.
Virtual reality, optical illusions, installations and holograms were some of the “exhibits” used to distance us from various preconceptions and reveal reality instead of illusions. In the Museum of Reality everyone was able to experience what it feels like to “lose ground under your feet” due to a devastating earthquake, live in a refugee camp in the Middle East or “switch roles” with children living in different conditions.
Visitors to the Museum could also find out more on how UNICEF is helping the most disadvantaged children and actively engage in the Childhood Guardians (Čuvari djetinjstva) programme to support the creation of a better, safer and fairer world for children.
