The Museum of Science and Optical Illusions is the latest project of the Pluto Astronomical Association, following the same educational line that can be found at the Mobile Planetarium or the Museum of Mobile Illusions.
Being a permanent location with a generous space of 700sqm, the volunteers of the Pluto Astronomical Association managed to build the only maze of mirrors in Transylvania, the longest Vortex tunnel, a huge Ames room, an UpSideDown room, teaching holograms, a virtual sand box and many other exhibits that combine science and optical illusions. The guides are supported by the well-known „astronomical storytellers” from the Mobile Planetarium, Dan Coltea and Adi Filpisan shows.
At the same time, there are live experiments that complete the school curriculum, being a real support for students, teachers and parents.
The location of the museum is an unconventional one, the former Turda Brewery, currently a historical monument. In the arrangement of the museum, an attempt was made to preserve and enhance the building, the resulting space being one in which the brick together with wood and metal helps build an authentic industrial atmosphere, but at the same time full of warmth and hospitality.
