Experience the Unexpected From the Comfort of Your Own Home
COVID-19 may have forced us to temporarily close our doors, but we are excited to share Illusion Art Museum Prague (IAM Prague), the Czech Republic’s first museum dedicated to illusion and trick art, with a global audience via our new virtual tour.
Inside you will encounter illusion art in many different styles, some rooted deep in history, others contemporary and cutting-edge, from anamorphic installations which render renowned historical figures in unexpected ways to metallurgical painting, trick art, spatial illusions, and more spread out over three full floors in a historically-protected building. In addition to our fun and thought-provoking exhibitions, visitors can enjoy views of Prague’s iconic astronomical clock and the surrounding Old Town Square. Take this unique opportunity to see Czech history come alive from the comfort of your own home.
We proudly display original works from established, internationally-recognized artists such as Patrick Hughes and Patrik Proško, among others, and also showcase the work of many exciting local artists including Ivana Štenclová and Ladislav Vlna, among many others.
We have supplemented the virtual tour with multimedia samples and text captions to better explain how these illusions work, provide historical background and details about the artists whose skillful hands and wild imaginations brought this to life. We appreciate your visit and welcome your feedback.
